Quickie recap: Harley is a young guy who should be in college, but instead has become a reluctant father to his 3 younger sisters when his mother takes their father's life. A story of longing and misplaced passions morphs into a disturbing psychological revelation.
Quickie review: O'Dell writes characters that are quite simply gripping. She channels hope, desperation and anguish astonishingly well. My heart raced me through the pages, wanting and needing to know, and yet afraid to find out and haunted by the tantalizing possibilities that flit through the paragraphs like ghosts.
Quickie recommendation: Oh yes.
