MacEnulty's grasp of the time, the maturity and sensitivity she brings to the characters, and her unflinching honesty made me gobble up the pages even when I was hesitant to follow where Eli was leading me. Eli is only fourteen when her world shifts and falls apart yet she displays a core strength and maturity that's unexpected and admirable. I liked her from the first page, and that ability of the author's to make us care about the people who occupy her story is one of the things that makes this book such a delight.
Crafted with a skill and talent that's nothing short of amazing, Pat MacEnulty takes us on a breathless adventure through this young girl's life, the good, the bad, the ugly, the heartbreaking. This
isn't a book for the faint of heart, but it is a book for the reader who demands depth of character, a strong plot, and and all the elements that make a novel a classic.
