really liked it

Katie Crouch's anthem to Southern girls who end up in a Northern climate is incredibly touching. Her writing is terse, full of tension and downright bitter as the protagonist falls from grace over the course of the decade following high school. She pursues a wide range of relationships from men, most of which diverge greatly from her proper Southern upbringing. Ultimately, she learns to depend on herself and becomes open to the love of her unexpected child as she returns to the South to join her mother. I loved Crouch's layered text and suspenseful feelings throughout the story.
