A timeless, compulsively-readable story about three young people bound forever by the harsh realities of love and hatred, tragedy and triumph. Lucy, Ellis, and Juliana draw on their hidden strengths to break free of a rich, corrupt family--and in doing so, are thrust into a web of greed and betrayal. A magnificent debut by an exciting new voice in American fiction.
I loooove this book! It is so well written. The characters are so real. Lucy is the dirt poor girl from Texas, Juliana is the spoiled rich brat and Ellis is misunderstood. These 3 characters couldnt be more different yet their lives intertwine and not always for the better.
I warn you that It is very depressing at times and you just want to yell at the characters sometimes but it is so worth the read. I got more out of it the second time reading it.
A delightful book. I kept turning the pages. following the story, and really got into it.
