Read in July, 2011

I read Back Roard years ago when it was first released and remember being quite shaken by this frighteningly beautiful tale. I spotted it at a yard sale and picked up this little gem for a quarter, and immediately reimmersed myself into the backwoods world O'Dell created. I finished it in a little over a day. Back Roads will (hopefully) disturb you, but its such a powerful book to read. O'Dell provides a deep level of complexity and "humanness" to characters which many of us would dismiss in everyday life as being "trailer trash". It is a haunting book- one that begs a sequel if only to reunite with the characters again.
