Totally engrossing book, I was drawn into the story right away and had a hard time putting it down.
Great story from page 1! Starts with a young girl preparing to give birth and hide the baby in the closet, then tells the story of the family coming back together after they are turned in to CPS.
intriguing story line about a teenage girl and her sister having a baby in their house and hiding the pregnancy and pending birth from everyone
This is a heartbreaking story of teenaged sisters caught up in a set of circumstances that you wouldn't wish on anyone. It's full of sadness and joy, love and despair. The writer does a wonderful job of transporting the reader into a world of secrecy and fear.
This book seemed to be a melting pot of every possible social dysfunction known to man. You have the death of a mother, the emotional neglect by a father, child neglect and abandonment, throw in a pedophile, the foster care system, the public school system failings, teen pregnancy and two girls delivering a baby at home and keeping it in the closet and the story becomes beyond believable. The characters are cumbersome, the writing dry and the plot stretched beyond imagination. Not a book I would recommend to anyone else.
