Then Ant’s best friend gets grounded, and he’s forced to find another spades partner. But Shirley, the new girl in his class, isn’t exactly who he had in mind. She talks a whole lot of trash—way more than his old partner. Plus Ant’s not sure that his father wants him playing with a girl. But she’s smart and tough and pretty, and knows every card trick in the book. So Ant decides to join forces with Shirley—and keep his plans a secret.
Only it turns out secrets are another Joplin man tradition. And his father is hiding one so big, it may tear their family apart.
