Book was good but I expected a bit more after reading the back and all the reports on it. I still enjoyed it and it had some very sad and disturbing bits in it. Pat

A young girl writes in her diary about her crazy pregnant mother, her bully of an older brother and her philandering father. In the heartland of America, this young spirited girl struggles to see beyond her oppressive parents and beyoun a life on a Texas wheat farm to all the possiblities of the wourld. Nice story.

Heart touching story of a child raised in a dysfunctional home with a mother who was depressed, sern and cold and a father who uses alchohol and women. The child makes a home (and comforts her fears) by making a 'home' for the 5 litle dolls who represent her mother's miscarriaged babies.

I really though this book was written well. The most interesting part for me was her perceptions of her mother and the rest of the family and all the events going on around her. It had innocence to it. Through her eyes she shares her journey into womanhood and goes from honoring parents and not questioning to having opinions of her own and seeing her family as they are. Although it is not a light happy story, I was glad I read it.
