Throughout the book, Dixie has to endure many things that no one, let alone an 11 year old girl, should ever have to go through but she remains strong and vigilant no matter what occurs. The author does a tremendous job of capturing the voice and spirit of 11 year old Dixie Dupree. You can definitely sense her longing for love and acceptance, along with her anger, confusion and distress throughout the story.
This book is a strong debut novel and I hope to read more from Donna Everhart in the future. I think it would make an excellent book club selection.
I received this book courtesy of Kensington through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.
