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.
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.Read more ›
The roommate in this book was Norma-Jean the name of my other favorite author and niece Norma-Jean Connors.
I have never read a book by T.L. Gray but now I am looking forward to finding more by her. Thank you for some great entertainment - I finished it in 5 hours.
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.

Interesting ghost story. It's not really about Milledgeville, GA. This book disappointed me because I bought it thinking it would be about my home town. Still, it was good. Read morePublished 12 days ago by Amazon Customer
