The Queen's Gambit meets The Hunger Games in this "brisk and brutal...harrowing and intriguing" (Kirkus Reviews) novel about a teen girl whose abusive father teaches her the finer points of chess and hunting, all for his own sinister ends...drawn from the author's own experiences.

For forever, Didi has had to be the best at anything her father demanded of her--the fastest runner, the master at chess, able to take down a deer with a bow and arrow at a dead sprint. If she fails, he denies her food. Clothes. Kindness. Yet he claims he loves her--he says he does--it's why he pushes her. To be ready. Prepared. For anything. Ready to fight. Ready to...

...Didi is terrified of what he may one day ask.

But she might be more prepared than her father ever expected.
