Small towns in America aren’t always like Mayberry or River City or Lake Wobegon. Sometimes they’re like Exeter, Massachusetts, the setting of Jennie Coughlin‘s book “Thrown Out: Stories from Exeter.”

This is a town of grudges, and secrets, and regrets. Alliances form and reform, the past becomes the future, where young boys find bodies in the marsh — and where nothing is ever quite what it looks like on the surface.

Who better to write such a tale than lifelong small-town resident Jennie Coughlin?
