The first sentence of the book will decide whether you'd like the book or not: "There are gods in Alabama: Jack Daniel's, high school quarterbacks, trucks, big tits, and also Jesus." So begins Arlene's life story.
Arlene leaves Alabama for college in Chicago, she makes three promises to God: to never again lie, never again fornicate, and never, ever go back to Possett, Alabama. All God had to do was to make sure the body of high school quarterback Jim Beverly was never found. But when questions are raised, her secrets are threatened to be exposed.
