This book was awesome! While the size of the novel in verse was a bit off putting at first, I really got into it! I was surprised at how quickly it read and really enjoyed all the characters. Williams does a great job at making you feel how the characters feel. I would definitely recommend this book! Check out the reviews and synopsis!!!
"Twelve year old Hope's life is turned upside down when her older sister Lizzie becomes an elective mute and is institutionalized after trying to kill herself. Ever since their dad died, Hope and Lizzie have relied on each other from a young age. Their mother is a reluctant and unreliable parent at best, who turns tricks to support the family. Throughout the course of this lyrical and heartbreaking narrative readers and Hope discover that the mother is prostituting Lizzie and it’s up to Hope to bring the truth to light to save her sister.
With raw and haunting writing reminiscent of Ellen Hopkins and Elizabeth Scott, Carol Lynch Williams is a promising new YA voice." -goodreads
