This book has a more adult content than other Letts books, or perhaps just more dark. I did not find very much humor in this book. Story delves into the underworld of the forgotten children in our culture.
Another great story from Billie Letts. I haven't read one of hers that I didn't enjoy and had a hard time putting down.
If you have never read any of Billie Letts books, this one would be a good place to start. This a tale of two kids alone in this world doomed until a kind sole who also has a lot of troubles befriends them. It turns out all three survive and begin a happy life after a rough ordeal. It was great book and I could hardly put down until I was finished with it. You will be hooked on Letts, if you read it.
A novel with some similarities to "Where the Heart Is" (also by Billie Letts). This is a must-read novel about two orphaned children who run away when their caretaker dies, and the troubles and problems they face along the way. It has sad moments and then very happy, inspiring moments too.
Finished this book in one day....again, Billie Letts does not let down her readers. You feel for the kids in this book and want the best for them. Wonderful story and very heart wrenching. GREAT READ
