This book will touch your heart. You will laugh at Carnikko’s strong language and headstrong attitude. You’ll cry with her as several important people check in and out of her life, you will be angry as she struggles through so many avoidable and unavoidable painful events, and you will root for her the whole way on her journey from the beginning to the end and find yourself wanting to know more about this amazing young lady.
This is an amazing book and I found it hard to put down, but at times I became so at one with Carnikko and the well written pages, that I had to stop and breathe and take in everything she had been through. You really feel like you are there with her every step of her journey. This is definitely the kind of book you don’t want to miss out on. I can hardly wait to read more from Joy Redmond’s series and find out where Carnikko goes from here! Great book!
I was riveted by this book in part because it reminded me of Angela's Ashes and a little bit of Huckleberry Fin (if Huck had been a girl.)
The main character grows on you the more you read, and her experiences are heart-warming and heart-wrenching. It's a tale of despair and poverty, but also one of hope and survival.
I laughed and almost cried. Women will probably cry. ;)
I look forward to reading more of Joy Redmond and I'm so glad I found this author. There are lots of good books to be read, but few of them give you that feeling that you're reading one of the new greats, like a modern Mark Twain or John Steinbeck. This book gave me that feeling.
The author has a gift for really bringing out the emotions of the reader. Her sense of humor shines through as well as her depth of soul. I also loved the timeframe. The book is set in the fifties and tells the story of a poverty stricken girl. It is a story of despair and of hope. A touching story and worth the read.
