Summary: In this coming of age novel, Lettie and Bert squeak by in a tiny town on Cape Cod, one parent an alcoholic and the other absent. After a string of bad decisions on Lettie’s part, their father ships them to their barely remembered mother for the summer, where they will learn hard lessons about themselves, their family, and their future by way of the Florida swamp. Throughout Lettie keeps her biting humor flowing, her razor-sharp pen at the ready, and her eye on her quest for a “normal” life.
Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review. This book was very well written and the author did an amazing job with the descriptions, but I just couldn't love it. I loved the idea of the story, but it just didn't work for me. I found the story to be a little slow throughout. I liked that the main character came to the realization that the grass isn't always greener on the other side. I just wish the book had been told in a more exciting way. I'm not sure if I would recommend this novel to anyone, but if you are looking for a coming of age novel be sure to check this one out.
