THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER "A tantalizing mystery and a tender coming-of-age story...Unputdownable."—Oprah.com In the summer of 1989, a Baton Rouge neighborhood best known for cookouts on sweltering summer afternoons, cauldrons of spicy crawfish, and passionate football fandom is rocked by a violent crime when fifteen-year-old Lindy Simpson—free spirit, track star, and belle of the block—is attacked late one evening near her home. For such a close-knit community, the suspects are numerous, and the secrets hidden behind each closed door begin to unravel. Even the young teenage boy across the street, our narrator, does not escape suspicion. It is through his eyes, still haunted by heartbreak and guilt many years later, that we begin to piece together the night of Lindy’sattack and its terrible rippling consequences on the once-idyllic community. Both an enchanting coming-of-age story and a gripping mystery,My Sunshine Away reveals the ways in which our childhoods shape us, and what happens when those childhoods end. Acutely wise and deeply honest, this is an astonishing and page-turning debut about the meaning of family, the power of memory, and our ability to forgive. Named A Book of the Year by NPR, The Dallas Morning News, Kirkus Reviews, and Booklist An Entertainment Weekly 'Must List' Pick

E-BOOK EXCERPT

My Sunshine Away is an extraordinary debut novel from M. O. Walsh, a dazzling new literary voice. Welcome to Woodland Hills, Louisiana: a place of lush, sweltering summers, neighbourhood cookouts in every backyard and vats of chilled beer under the crepe myrtles. A terrible crime is just about to take place... One day Lindy Simpson cycles home from school and straight into a trap: someone is lying in wait for her, a wire strung between lampposts blocking the path. She is raped just yards from her front door. No one sees a thing and the perpetrator is not caught. Her fourteen year old neighbour has cherished a crush on Lindy, the ultimate girl next door, since they were kids. After her assault he becomes determined to solve the crime, investigating each suspect in the neighbourhood. But before this long, hot summer is out, it will become clear that the friendly community of Woodland Hills has much to hide. Behind every white picket fence in suburbia lies a tangled web of darkness. In his zeal to solve the mystery, the teenage detective stumbles across a sinister world he doesn't recognise, drawing ever closer to a terrifying denouement. My Sunshine Away is an extraordinary debut novel from a unique new literary voice. Childhood in small-town America is filled with dreamy, technicolour days of innocence, but beneath the homely comforts and familiarity, this world is rotten to its very core. For every fan of The Lovely Bones and The Virgin Suicides comes a new and haunting tale of disturbance in suburbia. "Try and restrain yourself from flying through the pages of this wonderful novel. Instead savour this lush Louisiana mystery that takes you back to what life tasted like when you were still somewhat naïve to the ways of the world. Not just Southern but American in its vivid Baton Rouge colours and scents, treetops and grasses... The last page is as satisfying as the first. A mystery you cannot wait to solve." -Kathryn Stockett, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Help "This is literature of the highest order. Although the book snaps with the tautness of a thriller, My Sunshine Away also asks essential questions, like how much responsibility we have to each other, and whether we can we ever fully reassemble the pieces of broken lives. We need more novelists with the guts and clarity of M.O. Walsh." --Matthew Thomas, New York Times bestselling author of We Are Not Ourselves "If you start this novel, you will not put it down. My Sunshine Away is a riveting, suspenseful, page-turning mystery. It is also a wise, insightful, and beautifully written novel. This is an extraordinary debut." --Jill McCorkle, New York Times bestselling author of Life After Life "I can't praise it enough... I am swept up in the quiet beauty of the prose, and in the wisdom and compassion of the narrator. My Sunshine Away is not a thriller; it is a page turner and it's realism at its finest. It's about love, obsession, and pain. A beautiful, remarkable book. I hope M.O. Walsh writes many more." -Anne Rice, #1 bestselling author of Prince Lestat "Walsh's word-perfect rendering of the doubts, insecurities, bravado, and idealism of teens deserves to be placed in the hands of readers of Tom Franklin, Hannah Pittard, and Jeffrey Eugenides..." Booklist "My Sunshine Away is that rarest find, a page-turner you want to read slowly and a literary novel you can't look away from. At times funny, at times spine-tinglingly suspenseful, and at times wise... It's a book to read and reread. I'm already excited about M. O. Walsh's next book." -Tom Franklin, bestselling author of Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter "M.O. Walsh has written one of the best books I've read in a long while. An outstanding examination of the way that the past and the weight of our memories shape us... My Sunshine Away feels utterly original." -Kevin Wilson, author of The Family Fang "My Sunshine Away is so much more than a mystery; it's [a] love letter to youth and to possibility. This is an awe-inspiring debut, magic." -Hannah Pittard, author of Reunion and The Fates Will Find Their Way "M. O. Walsh's My Sunshine Away reminds us that art can be wrenching and a delight, that pain - if examined through wit, intimacy, and wisdom - can be a salve. This novel is great." --Darin Strauss, internationally bestselling author of Half a Life "Beautiful sentences, a mystery at the heart of the story, characters who consistently surprise... The opening grab[bed] me and the ending refuse[d] to let go. I finished reading the book both wiser and sadder than when I started."-Steve Yarbrough, author of The Realm of Last Chances "How do you explain Louisiana humidity? The slow, dull saturation that seeps through layers of one's skin? ... My Sunshine Away is the literary equivalent. M.O. Walsh reveals how one crime spills through layers of a Baton Rouge community... Only in the final pages does one feel relief like the stirrings of autumn in the deep South." -Veronica Brooks-Sigler (bookseller at Octavia Books, Louisiana)

E-BOOK EXCERPT

The New York Times bestselling author of My Sunshine Away returns with another instant Southern classic: a gripping, heartfelt, and wise novel about a mysterious machine that upends a small Louisiana town. What would you do if you knew your life's potential? That's the question facing the town of Deerfield, Louisiana, when an unusual new contraption appears in their local grocery store. The DNAMIX machine is nothing to look at, really--it resembles a plain photo booth. But its promise is amazing: with just a quick swab of your cheek and two dollars, the device will use the science of your DNA to tell you your life's potential. Soon the former teachers, nurses, and shopkeepers of the town are upending their lives to pursue their destinies as magicians, cowboys, and queens--including Douglas Hubbard and his wife, Cherilyn, who both believed they were leading perfectly happy lives until they realized they could dream for more.... At equal turns moving and hilarious, The Big Door Prize explores the ways in which the glimmer of opportunity can bring a community together, pull it apart, and reveal the power of self-discovery and second chances, even under the strangest of circumstances.
