For those who want stories wrapped up in a neat little bow, sorry, this is not for you. This book was real and raw with no fairy tale notions. We learn that every problem is not always solved in the ways we want them to be. Leah Griffith is a super talented writer and I look forward to her next book with much anticipation.
Cosette's tale grabs the reader from page one and holds them captive until the end. Like a good blend of honey, vanilla, and chamomile tea, you want to sit and sip every last drop of humor, wit, and charm she has to offer. All those secrets she has "knocking around inside" of her demand to be disclosed to you, her invisible traveling companion.
You'll delight in following Cosette and her dog Crumbs wherever they may venture, whether it be to Mooney Lake or to the store to buy her mom some cigarettes...to church with her sister Diana and Meme...to shoe shopping for Keds and shiny black Mary Janes... to walking home from school in the snow catching flakes on her tongue "like God just gave me communion straight from heaven"...
...To the scariest Christmas shopping trip ever, where she faces Mean Carlene in a department store and flees for her life, dragging reluctant Janice into St. Paul's church to find sanctuary. When Janice asks if it's okay to go in, Cosette says in no uncertain terms, "Sure, God's house is open all the time." Then you'll watch as she blesses herself with holy water and traipses down the aisle like she owns the joint.
Sadly, you'll also go with her to that dreadful place no innocent child should ever have to go: to Ken's prison house of abuse. But you'll applaud her resilient spirit in the face of such evil, her desire to move forward and chose her own tribe while her family remains trapped in darkness. You'll find yourself saying, "Pick me, pick me... I want to be in your tribe Cosette."
Leah Griffith has a voice that is plain-spoken, engaging, and compelling. Cosette's Tribe is a remarkably told story, one you'll read again and again just to hang out with Cosette, a lively character filled with wit, spunk, and grit.
Can't wait until this author releases her next project.
