A real world Katnis

This is a good survival story of a young girl as she grows into a woman under very difficult circumstances. The mistakes she makes are understandable considering her lack of adult guidance. She's what Katnis Everdeen (Hunger Games) would be in the real world. The narrator was excellent, was never apparent as I listened, as a narrator should be.

Will There Be More?

What did you like best about this story?

It has been a rare book that has presented such a collection of characters so real, so alive and a story line to go with that leaves one wanting for more.
Bonnie Jo is the perfect surprise in a market filled with okay writers. Do hope she has another book coming out soon.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Go with the flow.
