I picked this book up because I absolutely love stories set in Appalachia (probably due to generations of ancestors who lived there). The story was intriguing too.

I have to admit, it did take me a little while to get into the book. I initially had a difficult time with the dialect, considering I grew up in Northern Ohio, despite the Appalachian blood :P

It picked up by the middle of the book and went at a great pace the rest of the way. There was one aspect of the plot I was a tad disappointed with (view spoiler) but since it is technically a middle grade novel, that would probably confuse or bore a younger reader.

That said, I really enjoyed it and it makes me want to read more stories from Appalachia.
