Grabbed me from the beginning,and didn't let go.Very creepy listening to this in the dark,believe me!
Quite graphic in some places,and not for the squeamish.
However..the story builds to a great ending,and it is worth it to suffer through all the goosebumps you will have getting there!
I chanced upon this wonderful book when it first came out.I was immediately taken in by the story being told by the resilient and wise little girl,Ellen.Her story,sometimes gut-wrenching,sometimes hysterically funny,held me until the end.Ms.Gibbons has an extraordinary talent for turning just the right phrase,or finding humor in an anything but humorous situation.I was especially touched by the way Ellen slowly changed her circumstances from hellish to safe and secure,at last.I can't find any fault with this book.It remains one of my very favorites,and I read it at least once a year.Ms.Gibbons' unique story-telling skills have allowed me to enjoy all of her books,starting with Ellen Foster.
