“Laurrie Garner is an amazing storyteller. Her vividly drawn characters grapple with social issues so timely in today’s headlines. Yes, the story caught me unawares, forcing me to stay up all night to finish it. May I also confess to shedding a few tears along the way. This is one of those unusual books that sticks with you long after you’ve read it.” – Sharon Rich
