A book of loving family, religious fanaticism, abuse and independence, this book is GUARANTEED to make the most hard-hearted person cry for a good 15 minutes. This novel is well-written with a distinct voice and an urgent tone. You cannot help but empathize with the protagonist–indeed you can’t help but empathize with almost all the characters. I can’t imagine the trauma or the pain or the community developed throughout this book with the contradictory need to run and stay.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants a suspenseful, poignant, quick read. You will not be disappointed.
