Summary
When her rakish, gambling father abandons the family, pool hustler Cassie Claiborne must abandon her own dreams to take care of her distant mother and fragile older sister, until she comes up with a way to redeem her life
Summary
Cassie Claiborne's world is riddled with problems beyond her control: her hard-living father has another wife; her long-suffering mother is incapable of moving on; her sister Belle is a tempest of fragility and brilliance; her closest friends are adolescent harbingers of their own doomed futures. Frustrated by her inability to care deeply enough for so many troubled souls, Cassie finds in the local pool hall an oasis of green felt where she can mater objects and restrain her emotions
