    1. I gave up on this book about 40 pages in. I don't know if it was the super literary writing style or what but I couldn't really connect with the characters or the story. Oh well. Not every book can be a good one!


    2. Eight year old Penny is left behind in her rural hometown as her mother is sent to treatment for alcohol abuse. While it seems like her family is falling apart, Penny observes with her keen eye as her sister grows closer and closer with their babysitter, an anti-choice fanatic named Isabel Flood. Penny may be rebellious and a handful, but her understanding of the failing and developing relationships around her demonstrates some maturity even if the politics of it all evades her.


    3. Not as good as Crows Over a Wheatfield and her antiabortion stuff is a little contrived, but I adored the narrator. She reminded me of the protagonist of Mary Karr's the Liar's Club. Completely original and loveable. And I do love Paula Sharp.


    4. bleeeeeeeeeeehhhI kept with it because I was curious how it would go. The writing was pretty OK and that is why I rated it 2 stars. The characters just irritated me. I really wish I had not read this novel.



    5. Well, I'm glad I stuck with it. The first half felt tedious and a bit stereotypical to me. But the second half brought the characters and story to life for me.
