This book started off very interestingly. Its told from the point of view of a dead 10 year old girl who goes on to explain her life story as a poor white girl living in georgia in the 1960s. The book is written just like they would talk so that took some getting used to just so I could understand the book. I really didn't like this book. I made it to 85% finished (on my kindle) and couldn't bring myself to read the last of it. I just didn't care.

This book is a foreshadowing of "The Lovely Bones". I read this book this weekend and was impressed with the prose and the use of the local vernacular. A sad tale of a totally dysfunctional family and the support systems unavailable to them back in the time of the action.
The storyteller, the 10 year old herself is an intelligent but unsophisticated young girl in a brutal household.
Disturbing and rather sad that society treats people who are below the poverty line so badly.
