MidWest Book Review


"Intriguing and vivid mixture of story and poetry in which the characters are engaging, the conversations are realistic, the dialogue is wishes it were a play."


Kirkus Discoveries Review


"I found that I often needed to close the book to think and to feel what I had just read - or a better way to say it is "what I had just experienced". The writing is so descriptive I could imagine the scenes and the characters clearly in my mind. I could actually feel their emotions. I had to process it all and then quickly get back "inside" their lives. Lives of abuse, torment, and overcoming - finding their true self again."
