Baker & Taylor
A close-knit family from Marin County, California, the Fergusons struggle to cope with the trials and tribulations of life, while thirteen-year-old Rosie, obsessed with becoming a tennis champion, embarks on a desperate cycle of cheating

Blackwell North Amer
Rosie Ferguson, in the first bloom of young womanhood, is obsessed with tournament tennis. Her mother is a recovering alcoholic still grieving the death of her first husband; her stepfather, a struggling writer, must wrestle with his own demons. And now Rosie finds that her athletic gifts, once a source of triumph and escape, place her in peril, as a shadowy man who stalks her from the bleachers seems to be developing an obsession of his own.
Crooked Little Heart asks big questions in intimate ways: What keeps a family together? What are the small heartbreaks that tear at the fabric of our lives? What happens to grief when it goes underground? And on what road must we walk with our flawed and crooked hearts?
