I managed to forge ahead through this book, reading on despite what felt like every existing kind of plot device the author could use. Drug abuse, family/domestic violence, 2 unplanned teen pregnancies, a wrongful prison sentence, juvenile delinquency, military corruption- it just felt like it dragged on and on. I couldn't like the characters, who felt like they just reacted to everything going on, rather than develop and grow in any kind of germane way. Others have raved about the book and loved it, but my reading preferences just weren't compatible with the story.
