Book Description

Fourteen-year old Juniper "Junebug" Summerville loses her parents and her ability to talk in a car accident. Against her silent protests, she is sent to live in a remote swampland infamous for its ghosts, federal prison and insane asylum.

As Junebug struggles with her emotional scars, she begins to heal with help from six other orphans at Dearborn, a once famous Milledgeville Plantation. Just as she begins to enjoy the peace she’s long desired, she finds herself in a fight for her sanity when she stumbles upon a tear in the fabric that separates the possible from the impossible, and she must choose which to believe.

Milledgeville Misfit is a young adult novel that deals with grief and healing, and has an ending that leaves the reader with the choice of what to believe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Insanely intriguing... February 3, 2012
By Nj
Format:Paperback
Milledgeville, GA, is this town is recognized for Ghost tours and ghost walks, even recent ghost sitings... an absolute perfect setting for a dark story.

Great plot! So many disorders/illnesses stem from traumatic childhood incidences, and this story shadows the trauma that Junebug faces throughout her life.

At the tender age of thirteen, a young girl is traumatized by the loss of her parents and left unable to speak. All that matters to her is finding a way to deal with her life and its losses. The fact that she creates so many personalities shows that she isn't capable of handling what has happened to her and her family. And in turn, her mental state is severely affected. However, the author keeps you hooked by making you constantly wonder if this is all real or just fantasy...

Supporting characters (her persona's) each had a specific purpose representing aspects of her life that reinforced her well-being. I concluded they were her sanity (or what little she had).

I enjoyed reading Milledgeville Misfit and found it an easy read that makes you stop and think about what's actually happening. The writer exposes Junebug's frailties in such a way that reader feels her stresses. Especially being a young girl of only thirteen who is insecure and must leave the comfort of her home. Her loneliness obviously overwhelming.

Milledgeville Misfit Author T.L. Gray masters the concept of supposition. For me, a winning mix of personal drama, fantasy, and immortality intertwined with tests of realism. A fast-paced read that will inevitably leave you wondering about reality.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Chilling Tale April 19, 2012
Format:Paperback
A very chilling story! Wow, T L Gray weaves a griping tale of paranormal intrigue married with a psychological thriller in Milledgeville Misfit. As the reader, you are guessing about Junebug's world: the sanity vs insantity. Some nights I almost left the light on after I put down the book. Other nights I questioned my own sanity. Good going, T L Gray. I recommend this book.

MILLEDGEVILLE MISFIT
written by T. L. Gray
How would you feel if you were living in a big city like Atlanta and suddenly you were forced to go live in a rural town with a not-so-great reputation? In T. L. Gray's story a car accident occurs which forces a young girl named Juniper, but better known to her close friends as Junebug, to move to Milledgeville, Georgia where her closest relatives, whom she has never met, reside.
While she is there she gets to know a group of children that the reader is left to choose and to determine for themselves their state of existence. It is especially fun to read about our local area being written about in MILLEDGEVILLE MISFIT. While you are reading you are left feeling as though Junebug is someone that you could be friends with from down the street or that lives next door.
The author's writing is very imaginative and creative. T. L. Gray even adds an educational tint to the book as she teaches the characters Biblical scripture, manners, and even gets down to the nitty-gritty of the English language to what a metaphor is. Of course as these things are explained to the book's characters the reader is reaping the benefit too.
The book is scary and you will find yourself sitting on the edge of your seat as well as looking over your shoulder and being sensitive to having a chill. You will quickly turn the pages to discover what adventure or trouble Junebug will get into next. At one point Junebug is led to do some important research at the library and finds that newspapers sometimes can be very revealing and horrifying.
I believe that a young person who likes ghosts and haunted houses would find this book extremely enticing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Is it real or not? Doesn't matter - good read either way. February 18, 2012
Format:Paperback
This is the story of a 14-year old (Junebug) who has lost both parents in an automobile accident which she survived. She is unable to speak - until she arrives at the old plantation house where she is to live with older, distant relatives. There she finds herself talking to various children also living in the mansion. But do they really live there at all? Junebug's life becomes more of a puzzle than ever. A crisis happens, and she leaves the mansion. She returns ten years later to some surprises. What is real, what is in her head? The author leaves that to the reader.

Junebug's tale (and that of those around her) is a compelling one. As an adult who often reads fiction for younger readers, there was plenty here to interest me. I found the characters relatable. I liked Junebug, although I actually found some of the other children more intriguing.

The prose is descriptive, with dialogue that rings true. The book flows well; there's no dragging or extraneous detail. Every once in a while there was an awkward sentence or phrasing, but nothing that detracted too much. I know kids will especially like the clues interspersed throughout the book, foreshadowing information Junebug gets later, and later events as well. I don't usually like open ended stories. However, in this case I didn't mind so much, because it fits with the tone of the story. I can't say more without giving it away.

I enjoyed reading Milledgeville Misfit. It will definitely go on my keeper shelf.

Disclaimer: I know the author; however, my review is honest and true to my personal 'take' on the book.
