Choosing to move to Alaska, Natalie's family faces the hardships of poverty, harsh weather, and personal trajedy. She tells her story with straight forward honesty, pulling you into her life. This is a book about overcoming the obstacles that are in her path of life.
I had a hard time getting into this book. The story drags at times and leaves you with no closer on what happens next other times. The parents were loving and forgiving but overall clueless on how to truly care for others. I do like that fact that it is raw and real but does lack true depth on just what all happen, parts of the story are missing.
