The Row

Written by J. R. Johansson and Illustrated by Janine O'Malley

Seventeen-year-old Riley Beckett's father is a convicted serial killer on death row who has always maintained that he was falsely accused. Riley believes that he is innocent until, a month before the execution date, in an attempt to help her move on, her father secretly confesses to her that he actually did carry out the murders. He takes it back almost immediately, but she's determined to uncover the truth for her own sake. She discovers something that will forever change everything she's believed about the family she loves.
