This was a beautiful story. I loved this book, as i have loved Laura Wiess' stories. I hope to see new books from her that are as amazing and spectacular as this one !

This is a beautifully written story about a girl who father molested her and so her dad went to prison. But her mother did not believe anything happened so she is still with him, so when he gets out he comes back home and she has to live with him. But this story is also about finding love even when people are "broken." I also wish it was longer or that she wrote a sequel!

Good book, didn't know what to expect in the end. Certainly could've had a better ending, it was very abrupt.
