    I don t think I have ever read a novel that so accurately describes the thoughts and actions and motivations of human beings There was not one false note in this entire book People acted in this book how they actually do in real life at least in my experience Their feelings of love and anger and self hate were so acute, I often found myself rela

    5 stars The hope that I will find a book like this one is the reason I read.Home A word that conveys so many different meanings that for each person it is as individual as a fingerprint For Jack Boughton, it is a place he has run from, longed for, and never quite fit into For his sister, Glory, it is a place she loves, wishes to escape from, but knows she will be ti
