In Nevada, Sloan family matriarch, Janice, is tired of her white trash life—dealing with debt, kids, her son’s motorcycle gang, and Harry, her drunk of a husband. She can’t shake her lifelong dream of singing at the Grand Ole Opry.
As Janice’s teen daughter, Carrie, plans her escape to college, Janice confronts the fact that she’s forty-eight and running out of time. She decides to leave her two young sons with Harry and move to Nashville for one year to pursue her dream. But before Janice can leave, Harry’s worst betrayal yet destroys everyone’s plans, and detectives start digging up the family dirt.
Times are desperate for the Sloan Family. They might survive if they can become each other’s unlikely heroes. Do they have what it takes to confront the truth about their lives and each other and break free from their way of life on Tiger Drive?
Debut novelist, Teri Case puts us inside the minds of mother, father, daughter, and son to portray how addiction, poverty, and secrets can derail the best of intentions. But with a little hope and a dose of trust, the human spirit can prevail.

I read this book in about 3 hours. It is riveting. Teri Case does an amazing job and having her characters come to life. I did not want the book to end. I am hoping for a sequel.
What an incredible book! I read it cover to cover on a flight from LA to NY and ended up sobbing, I mean the full on ugly-cry, in a middle seat squished between two business men. This novel is This Is Us in book form. I was still tearing up as I deplaned. One of the best books I’ve read in a long time, with characters I will not soon forget. A must read!
