In a weird way, this kind of story has almost a subgenre unto itself. When 1 person who is considered "normal" becomes intimately connected with another person who isn't. The best example of the is 'Of Mice & Men' by John Steinbeck where the ranch hand has to care for the slow, but gentle giant. Invariably, the real world that doesn't understand or care comes crashing down around them and it all ends in a heartwrenching decision of life and death. While this book is no where near as good as 'Of Mice & Men,' it's still damn good. Fantastically written, I identified so much with Holly Locke and her teenage anger and her desperate need to find somewhere she can belong. And I think anyone can relate to, at some level, with Jack Plum and his abusive mother because he is just looking to be loved. Again, while we've tread this ground before, this was well written and heartbreaking and a good read.
