A nice small story about a girl with tremendous inner strength Her mother is unreliable on a level that ualifies as neglect Her grandmother is one of the most bitter and spiteful characters I've encountered in a long time Brilliantly drawn grandmother Things happen Things change I had been worried that the homeless angle in the story combined with a boozing law breaking mother who makes bad choices where men are concerned might make this inappropriate for junior age readers but I find I'm comfortable with it Sand Eveland walks the tightrope lightly and successfully letting us see the young protagonist's bleak world without giving so much detail that we end up with a YA book about displaced youth This is as noted a small story about a brave girl full of hope for young readers

This book is very sweet It’s like a sort of modern day version of Heidi – with the heroine becoming separated from her mother because of homelessness poverty and addiction and with a judgmental grieving grandmother standing in the grandfather role It’s obvious that the author has dealt with homelessness and poverty in teens before Excluding a few times when I felt like Mel’s tribulations were softened a bit Mel’s story seems realistic to me However I still just couldn’t connect with it completelyI think that the main barrier for me is the writing style The prose is very stripped down and simplified and combined with a third person point of view amounts to a very disconnected almost clinical recitation of events It even feels a bit like the novelization of a case file at times – as if the author is a complete outsider reading the basic events out loud without having any emotional investment in the subjectsI read books because I like to be challenged and stretched; I like to fall into someone else’s head for a while I like to know what it’s like to live a completely different life or to even gain new perspective on my own Unfortunately this book just didn’t do any of those things for me However I do think that this is a very nice well meaning piece of fiction that I would happily hand over to any middle school child It’s a nice introduction to some issues that may be difficult to speak about with your children and it might spark some nice discussion Perfect Musical PairingDusty Springfield – Every Day I Have to Cry SomeThis book reminds me of this song – a light breezy cover that was popular in its day but only makes me want to listen to the genuine emotion and heartbreak of the virtually unknown original version
