I chanced upon this wonderful book when it first came out.I was immediately taken in by the story being told by the resilient and wise little girl,Ellen.Her story,sometimes gut-wrenching,sometimes hysterically funny,held me until the end.Ms.Gibbons has an extraordinary talent for turning just the right phrase,or finding humor in an anything but humorous situation.I was especially touched by the way Ellen slowly changed her circumstances from hellish to safe and secure,at last.I can't find any fault with this book.It remains one of my very favorites,and I read it at least once a year.Ms.Gibbons' unique story-telling skills have allowed me to enjoy all of her books,starting with Ellen Foster.

I think that I would have enjoyed the unabridged version if it were available. I found this much too "choppy" and difficult to follow and was unable to finish the book.
