Set in the late '70s, A Girl Called Sidney: The Coldest Place by rock musician Courtney Yasmineh is a searing, nerve-rattling story of a mature 17-year-old whose family disintegrates in spectacular fashion in affluent suburban Chicago.

After first spiriting her mother away and then running away herself to the family's remote Northwoods cabin in Minnesota, Sidney challenges herself to survive alone and find her voice over the course of a brutal winter.

The narrative takes the reader on a dark and moody ride back and forth in both time and place, between Chicago and a tiny rural town. Getting inside Sidney's head as she tries to make sense of a cast of characters - family, hangers-on, and old and new friends - the novel examines the roots of their dysfunction while Sidney plots the future and works to make real her pursuit of music.

With appeal to readers of the recent rash of women rocker bios - and contemporary fiction of the heartland - the story looks with a fresh perspective back to a distinct time and the experiences of a young woman that will resonate with many adults.
