Bookworm1858 - Reading about this story, I’m glad to know that there are moments of hope that keep the book from being too dark and overwhelming. Looking forward to checking this one out for myself!

Savannah - Wow! I’ve never heard of this book before, either. You seem really passionate about the book, and it’s definitely a unique plotline: the only thing that comes to mind in comparison, is the relationship between brothers in S.E.Hinton’s The Outsiders, and even that was an entirely different situation. Maybe I’ll have to put it on my “To-Read” list…

Alexa Y. - This is a book I had NO idea about before I read your review. And I must say – you make a pretty convincing case for why I should read it. I do love that it’s about siblings, first of all, and it’s always been a particular favorite situation of mine to see the older sibling loving and caring for the younger one (even if they’re in a crappy situation like this one). I’m intrigued!
