I have never come across a book quite like this one. Violence, anger, redemption, victory over adversity and tragic loss...if you can find it, it's a fantastic read. It is a rare love story about a strange native American juvenile delinquent and her social worker. I would recommend to all! Read full review
This was a great story. It was one of my favorite books to read in the summer. She had many struggles and came out of them. I did not like the ending, it was rather brutal! But it gave me hope.
