The Forgiveness of Blood / Joshua Marston

The lives of a teenage boy, Nik, and his younger sister Rudina are thrown into turmoil after a killing draws their Albanian family into a blood feud. This ancient custom forces Nik into house arrest along with the other male members of his family, suddenly derailing his future. The family becomes dependent on 15-year-old Rudina, who unexpectedly finds herself tasked with helping them earn a living. Meanwhile, Nik’s frustration and anger threaten to overwhelm him. In his desperation, he concocts a plan to end his confinement – a plan that may cost him his life.
