A great coming of age story! I love the way Funk tells a story. I appreciate the new perspectives I got and have hung onto.

Highly recommend. 4.5 Stars This is one of those stories that sneaks up and grabs the heart. There's no sexy, sex scene. What it is is a Character driven story. It's free...try it.

Lovely story, nice settings. All the good things a story should have.

(not 5 stars because of regularly popping up formatting errors, nothing major but can get annoying)

Some great descriptive passages of small town prairie living. Some editing problems (admitted by the author) otherwise another star. Good book, though.
