really liked it
bookshelves: general-fiction, library, 2014, tear-jerkers

A good book with a tough story to tell. I enjoyed how all the story lines started separately and came together in the end. This book is probably not for everybody because of the intense subject matter; I could see personal beliefs and experiences with war/military service, foster care, abuse, racism, etc. getting in the way of enjoying this story. But, I think that was the point that the author is trying to make: this story could happen, has happened, and is not an easy pill to swallow.
