What a tough read, this one was. Still, compelling enough to keep me going.
June has it bad. Her mom’s been dead for years, which is tragic enough. But her stepmom makes it even worse. She’s an evil stepmom in the most horrible way. There’s abuse, both physical and emotional. The saddest part is that her dad is oblivious to everything. Through it all, June retreats inside herself to escape.
And then she meets Blister. On a walk through the woods one day, he’s just there. And he becomes the most important person in her life. His family becomes her safe haven as well. Still, she can’t share her deepest darkest secrets with them. Because if she had, maybe tragedy would have been averted…
A good story, both sad and hopeful at times. Parts of it were hard to take, but it is what it is.
