The love between a daughter and her motherand the dark secrets they keep from each otherare at the heart of this wildly imaginative novel that combines elements of The Handmaid's Tale, Stranger Things, and Twin Peaks.

"I love Heartbreaker's outlandishness, its sizzling energythe bright, fierce music in every sentence."Leni Zumas, author of Red Clocks

It's 1985. Pony Darlene Fontaine has lived all her fifteen years in "the territory," a settlement founded decades ago by a charismatic cult leader. In this strange town run on a sinister economic resource, the women crimp their hair and wear shoulder pads, and the teenagers listen to Nazareth and Whitesnake on their Walkmans. Pony's family lives in the bungalow at the farthest edge of town, where the territory borders the rest of the wider worlda place none of the townspeople have ever been.

Except for Billie Jean Fontaine, Pony's mother. When Billie Jean arrived in the territory seventeen years priorfalling from the open door of a stolen carthe residents took her in and made her one of their own. She was the first outsider they had ever laid eyes on. Pony adores and idolizes her mother, but like everyone else in the territory she is mystified by her. Billie Jean refuses to describe the world she came from.

One night, Billie Jean grabs her truck keys, bolts barefoot into the cold October darknessand vanishes. Beautiful, beloved, and secretive, Billie Jean was the first person to be welcomed into the territory. Now, with a frantic search under way for her missing mother, Pony fears: Will she be the first person to leave it too?

Told from the three unforgettable perspectives of a daughter, a killer dog, and a teenage boy named Supernatural, this novel is startling in its humor and wrenching in its wisdom about the powers, limits, and dangers of love. Heartbreaker is an electrifying page-turner about a woman reinventing herself in order to surviveand a daughter who must race against the clock to untangle the mysteries left in her mother's wake.

Praise for Heartbreaker

"A fierce exploration of memory and zeitgeist . . . Heartbreaker is a darkly comedic weirdo of a book that pulls the string of nostalgia from one side while unraveling it from the other."The Paris Review

"This is a book like no other. It's eerie, it's cult-y, it's so very exciting, and I never wanted it to end."Buzzfeed, Best Books of Fall 2018

"Claudia Dey renders 1985 in perfectly crimped, shoulder-padded detail. . . . Come for the Shyamalanian premise. Stay for the hard-rock soundtrack."Chicago Tribune
