I really enjoyed this book. What an amazing story of a coming-of-age young girl. Kya is abandoned by her entire family over a period of several years. But her resiliency and strength were impressive. Between the pages of this awesome book is a tale of survival, hope, racism, loneliness, love, and anger.
This book is a wonderful story woven with poetry, emotions, nature, and breathtaking beauty. At one point I truly gasped because I thought something had happened that I was not ready to accept. But luckily, it was just a twist to keep you flipping through the pages as fast as possible.
I promise that you will want to read through to the last page, the last word, the last expression of enlightenment. You will not be disappointed!
