it was amazing
bookshelves: currently-reading, re-reading

First off, ignore the fact that this was made into a crappy John Wayne movie.
This book is about a pissed off little girl who tracks down her father's killer so she can confront and murder him... I swear, I'm not making this up. She's truly scary... and empowering. It's not the fastest paced story, but c'mon folks this IS a Western.
I highly recommend this book after a particularly angry break-up or loss of a job. You'll get all tingly inside when you read about the stubborn, murderous, anger that makes this kid tick, and soon you'll forget all about whoever you secretly want to kill.
