Her mother, Swamplandia!’s legendary headliner, has just died- her sister is having an affair with a ghost called the Dredgeman- her brother has secretly defected to the World of Darkness in a last-ditch effort to keep their sinking family afloat- and her father, Chief Bigtree, is AWOL.

To save her family, Ava must journey on her own to a perilous part of the swamp called the Underworld, a harrowing odyssey from which she emerges a true heroine.
