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.
