Thought-provoking and heartfelt, this debut novel shows that the power of love brings the best blessing even during the bitterest trials.
This back of the book sure caught my attention. I finished it in a few hours. My heart went out to most of the characters. Mahring is able to paint a complete picture of a troubled family. She gives the reader a sense of the raw emotions a teen feels as she faces life. Her writing is brave in that she doesn't gloss things over nor does she sugar coat the issues.
Thank you Christine Mehring for this heart-felt and gut check novel. Well worth the read.
