did not like it

I don't know what to say about this book. It's getting a 1/5 rating from me, but not the 'terrible books' tag. What that means is basically that I fucking hated it, but I guess I can see why some people think it's awesome.

It's a story that takes place during the depression and follows a family as the migrate from a coal-mining town to an industrial city. As a rule, I'm way into depression era books and I'm way into books about people moving. Plus, I like books called weird things like "Yonnondio." This book though, man was it dull!

In summation : Don't read it, because it's really dull and boring and you will be like, "I wish this girl would shut up and stop whining about the Depression already and go play her Wii Fit or something."
