I would give this book two thumbs up. This is not the genre that I normally read. I enjoyed the characters in the story because they were both products of their environment, but they were also able to grow and change. The point of view switches back and forth smoothly between the girls' perspectives. As the story progressed I found it harder and harder to put down.
In addition to learning about the lives of these two girls, I learned, thru the story more about the realities of the depression era.
In some parts of the story, I felt that the relationships of the girls and their families was over simplified.
I got this book for free from Bethany House Publishers in return for reviewing the book. If you are interested in reviewing a book check them out http://www.bethanyhouse.com/
