My 16 year old grand son has to read this for school, and he hates to read but was reading it because he really likes it, (and that's something) so it is taking him a while because he reads slow, so I got the audible version for him and he is enjoying listening to it and following along. He says it's a great book, when he gets through, I will read it.
No my grandson can't sit still that long
If he likes it it must be pretty good, can't wait to read or listen myself
One of my best reads. Dealing with the poor and the snobbish rich and working class trying to impress the rich to hang on to their job at the paper factory which is polluting the river, babies are being born dead or deformed, but people need their jobs. The Snow family is the poorest and full of family skeletons, but just as the last 3 members seem as though they are going to rise above the corruption, tragedy strikes again. It's sad but the remaining two Snow members come out on top.
When Mercy starts falling in love for the first time.
She was a fighter to the bitter end and always took care of her siblings
Enjoyed this book very much
