Product Description
 
'To be honest, we just weren't looking that hard. We didn't know where to search and it was summer vacation anyway - but that wasn't the reason nobody looked for Jude.'

One summer, a teenager disappears from Deep Valley, Pennsylvania. She is beautiful, intelligent, richer than most in those parts - and black. The cops search for her, but not as hard as they would if she were a white girl.

Watching this drama unfold is Cindy, a younger girl from a white trash family, living up in the woods on the edge of town. She has idolised Jude for years, yearning for her glamour, her popularity, her loving home and decent chance in life. And so, in the absence of anyone to give a damn where she goes or what becomes of her, Cindy starts to slip out of her own skin and into the space Jude left behind . . .'To be honest, we just weren't looking that hard.
