In Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains, fourteen-year-old Bobbie Grey is crazy about cowboy movies. Gene Autry’s code of honor guides her into an adult society she's not sure she wants to enter. The KKK, her stepfather's alcoholism, and her mother's love for another woman set her spinning in confusion. Ultimately, Bobbie learns that love transcends race and gender and that it sometimes requires the ultimate sacrifice—letting go.
