Angelsea Mead's life seems to fall apart the day she suggests her parents get a divorce. More
The evening Angelsea Mead confronted her parents about their fighting, she shocked everyone. Including herself. Her family, Angel included, was expert at pretending everything was OK.
So why was she facing two angry people, telling them they should divorce if they couldn't get along? She really didn't want that to happen. Or did she?
Whatever she intended, she apparently inspired her parents to act. In the space of a few weeks, the Meads sell their house in town and the family splits up. Suddenly, Angel is facing an unknown future in Crookwood, with a splintered family, little money, and no friends. Now she must confront something else: Her worst fears about who she really is.
Crookwood is a Texas Institute of Letters award winner.
