bookshelves: rural
Read in June, 2007

O'Dell really captures rural, economically-depressed Pennsylvania. While I didn't grow up in coal country, when I read her books, I am instantly through back to my childhood central PA. She shows so many of the reasons I fled the area. I'm amazed she is living there, writing about it, and yet I'm glad, too, because hers is the first modern account on this part of the world that I have read.

One of the great things about this book is the main character. She is an unreliable narrator who kicks butt while remaining unequivocally femme.
