3.5 stars. The subject matter isn't something that usually appeals to me--a tween and her older sister living on an army base with their abusive father, hoping for a way out--but the writing sucked me in and helped me bond with the characters. To me, that is a mark of a solid writer, when you can enjoy a book outside of the usual realm/genre you like largely because of their skill. I grew to care about Katie, and root for her to run away with her sister and find a better life. I will be reading more from this author!
