There is something about Southern writers- they just know how to tell a story and Anton DiSclafani tells a great one. I loved this book. Thea, the main character, makes a series of very poor (and slightly horrific) decisions, but I somehow found myself maintaining throughout the entire book that she really was a good girl, just a bit confused. In reality though, she wasn't all that confused- she's too smart to be confused, and maybe how smart she was made me like her so much. The book delved so deeply into the complicated relationships within families, between adolescent girls, and within early romances. 

Favorite Quote:

Her skin always looked slightly moist, in a pretty way, as if she'd just taken a bath.

Why You Should Read It:

I was hooked the moment I picked this book up. It's so well written and the story is so compelling.
