Gr 5 Up—Sisters Della, 10, and Suki, 16, are put in foster care after escaping a sexually abusive home. Readers
experience their initial recovery through Della's perspective as she finds strength in herself but sees Suki declining.
This book is searingly honest with an ultimately hopeful resolution. Readers are strongly urged to experience this
text with a trusted adult, as there is a great deal to unpack in the narrative. Gut-wrenching, hopeful, and necessary.

What I appreciated most about this novel was the brilliant way it captured how people (especially children) respond to trauma. Bradley's characters respond in irrational and counterproductive ways, but you completely understand why they do it and where they are coming from. I also really appreciated the perfect balance between ugliness and hope.
