This book’s cover hooked me, but its characters kept me reading. They came alive on page one and never relented. The plot was unique in a quiet sort of way. Straightforward, poignant writing and excellent dialogue. There was wit on every page even with the dark subject matter. Exactly my kind of book. Added bonus: it was set in my neck of the USA! Rare to find in fiction and very cool to read!
