Abstract:

All Kevin wants is to be like any other high school student and learn how to drive and hang out with his friends. But when your parents run a funeral home, it{u2019}s tough to have a normal life. And when you{u2019}re a Mormon living in the South, well, that just about triples your weirdness quotient. Especially when an elderly woman from church drafts you into the Granite Girls, a group that records the names on all the tombstones in Armadillo, Arkansas. Try explaining that to the local sheriff who catches you in a graveyard at 6:30 in the morning. One not-so-weird thing about Kevin{u2019}s family is the love they have for Marcy{u2014}a young African-American woman who{u2019}s like the sister Kevin never had. Just as the family prepares to help Marcy renovate the house across the road with money left to her by her late father, a stranger shows up at the Paramount Funeral Home. It{u2019}s Ruby, Marcy{u2019}s mother, whom she hasn{u2019}t seen in twelve years. Soon after Ruby{u2019}s arrival, things begin to disappear{u2014}and Ruby makes sure Kevin takes the blame. As her threats become more personal, Kevin must find a way to expose Ruby and to convince others of the truth, not only for Marcy{u2019}s sake, but to save his own reputation.
