    Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in "The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas". As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived, and famously testified that her 15-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who've long forgotten her.

    Story
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The heroine of the story. She was well rounded - things I didn't like about her and things I did. Admired her cunning and bravery in spite of what life gave her.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Her voice was pleasant - not overdone or distracting.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laughed a little at her sarcasm. Shocked and surprised at parts.


    Any additional comments?

    Love this author from what I have read so far.
