it was amazing
bookshelves: 2017, overdrive

This book is horrific - like, absolutely fucking horrific. But it will change the way you think about young victims of domestic and sexual abuse, so you should read it. Not in lieu of the next Danielle Steele, but you should read it. The Steinbeckian descriptions of Mendocino flora and fauna alone are worth the price of admission (i.e. the pain of reading about grotesque incestuous rape). Have I sold you yet?
