Sometime in the mid 1970’s, Johnny and his younger sister, Cot, doggedly investigate the murder of their teacher, Miss Theda Holly, whom 15-year-old Johnny loved, with a burning love. They live in the Heart-Shaped Forest, in a logging town called Copeland, in an unnamed part of the American North. No one else, not the police, not the people of Copeland, nobody, seems very interested in solving the murder. Teaming up with Miss Holly’s brother, Eli, Johnny and Cot are drawn into a deeper mystery than they had ever imagined, a mystery with world-shaking implications.
