Read in April, 2012

So first I have to say that the cover and he title are very misleading. I looked at it and thought it was some cutesy coming-of-age story that would be traditionally slow moving and boring. I was dead wrong (that'll teach me to judge a book by its cover).

The story centers around Fern the invisible middle child. She finds herself feeling very out of place in her family and this makes her absolutely miserable. And then suddenly the unthinkable happens and Fern's already messed up family must find a way to pull the pieces back together. It brought me to tears several times. Everything about Fern is just so real. I've never gone through what she had to deal with but Jo Knowles wrote out every thought and emotion that Fern had that I felt like I was the broken one and she was just along for the ride.

See You At Harry's is a beautiful, sad, tragic, and utterly realistic story that certainly kept me holding on until the last page.
