This is the 2nd best audiobook I have listened to.
When the main character finally finds love and you feel like after all her hardships she has endured that she will be finally be happy, yet even that is stripped from her.
The changes in voice tones from child to teen to adult make the story very real.
A coming of age.
I loved listening to this book. It was such a fabulous story. The only thing I didn't like about the reading was the mens'
voices. But, it is probably difficult for a woman to do a man's voice. Otherwise, I would recommend this book to anyone, especially a book club which is why I read (listened) to it.
I listened to this for a Young Adult Literature course and listened from the perspective of a secondary English Teacher. This was one of those novels that crushes you when it is done but leaves you with a new perspective on life. I recommend this to anyone that wants to read a story of resilience and the connects we can make with others despite the challenges and hurt life can give us.
This book has so many layers that can be taught through multiple avenues. It has something all students can relate to.
The narrators pitch is way to high and uplifted at the end of every sentence. Perhaps this is meant to be 'period'. As in Valley Girl, but not a tone I found easy to listen too.
A wonderful story that weaves between now and a previous time. Wonderful language and the narration is so beautiful it makes the story come alive! I was so sad to see the book end. I will miss my friends.
