Drawing favorable comparisons to the literary stylings of Carson McCullers and Kaye Gibbons, Jayne Pupek’s debut is hailed by Library Journal as a “wrenching, stunning, and pitch-perfect novel.” Eleven-year-old Ellie Sanders is forced to grow up quickly when her pregnant mother develops health problems and her father’s attentions become diverted by a teenage produce peddler. To escape, Ellie creates a secret world of her own, where life still seems normal.

    " This was beautifully written in the voice of a preteen girl, named Ellie. I gave it 3 stars, rather than four, because it was so disturbing. Ellie has bad luck when it comes to parents - a selfish father and a mentally disturbed mother. She was forced to become an adult way too early. "

    " This was a very disturbing book. I really related the Easter chick part. I too had an Easter chick. It was purple. I'm in therapy, but I won't tell you what happened to my chick. I listened to the audiobook and the narrator was great. It is hard to imagine how an eleven-year-old girl could live a life like that. I am glad she had friends like Clara and Jerico and even Mary. It was quite dark and not for the faint of heart. Sometimes I'd ask myself, "Why am I reading this?" The writing was great and the story totally sucked me in. I was hoping for a better outcome but was not surprised by the ending. I loved the line "Lily in a hurricaine." Good Song title. Haunting read. "

    " This book was super dark and sad, but had a strong voice, was intriguing, and left me bummed that it was over. "

    " this was a powerful story and I am not surprised that it was written by a former social worker. This goes in the favorite category~! "
