Never before I've read characters so visceral resilient strong so brave and yet so utterly self destructive; bent on harming themselves when they can forgive each other This was an Oprah Book Club choice but I’ll forgive thatThis is without a doubt hands down absolutely one of my favorite favorite books Of all Time In fact this one here is right up there next to Fools Die by Mario Puzo on the very top It's so haunting beautifully written The characters so real that I feel for them every time I read it I could pick this up any time any where and it will move me just the same every single time It is fallow like that But the emotional impact oh boy remains the same Devastating Let's try a sample of her writing shall we just a taste Okay SPOILERS DOWN BELOWIt wasn't fair he got the chance and I didn't I wouldn't have wasted it If I had known Mom was going to kill Dad that night as I went off to Skip's house to drink contraband beers and bullshit about horny college chicks I would've stopped first and cleared some things up I would've asked him why he didn't like me I would've apologized for being such a disappointment to him And I would've told him I loved him because I did in some joyless unsatisfying way that hurt instead of healed but I knew it was still love In my hands right now this book feels as vague and familiar as home; comfortable oh how I love 2006 For a year can be be home too But I love Another now and for another And God I am tempted to reread this immediately at once but no I'll just read one of her newer novels sitting emptily on my shelf I can't recommend this book enough in fact I would urge everyone to read this pronto Don't miss out on this Please feel the urgency Tawni O'Dell is a remarkably talented woman in the same vein as Janet Fitch she is not only a favorite author of mine but also one of the best people in the known worldI wish could give Back Roads a thousand stars but already a thousand suns have gone into making this oneLet this devastate you Let it

Ng dependence to loathing And once he develops an obsession with the sexy melancholic mother of two living down the road those Victoria's Secret catalogs just won't do the trick any He wants Callie Mercer so badly he fears he will explode But it's the family secrets the lies and the unspoken truths that light the fuse and erupt into a series of staggering surprises leaving what's left of his family in tatters Through every ordeal the unforgettable Harley could never know that his endearing humor his love for his sisters and his bumbling heroics wo. I have to admit that the blurb is deceiving this time From the blurb you wouldn't be able to tell how great the book is without at least reading the first chapter it just pulls you in and you'll wanna find out Back Roads is about a 19 year old boy named Harley Altmyer who has to take care of his three younger sisters after their caring mom has been sent to jail for killing their abusive father The book is not about how he's surviving in life though but about love as well as a key point to the book is that he lusts for a mother of two down the road of his home As the story progresses unbelievable things seems to progress and the shocking truth is revealed at the end the truth about the father's death At first to me it seems like the book has no point it's just talking about some crappy life of a kid who's suffering because he's at lost of parents and that he has to live on his own while taking care of his 3 sisters yet there is to it that meets the eyes This book reminds me of the Catcher in the Rye as how the situations are differently yet the main character have the biggest issue with everyone else in the book Either way i think this was one of the best books i read in my life I recommend it to everyone Warning This book is pretty mature don't read if you can't handle grusome description or sex scenes or incestuous themes

Back RoadsHarley Altmyer should be in college drinking Rolling Rock and chasing girls He should be freed from his closed minded stricken coal town with its lack of jobs and no sense of humor Instead he's constantly reminded of just how messed up his life isWith his mother in jail for killing his abusive father Harley is an orphan with the responsibilities of an adult and the fiery aggressive libido of a teenager Just nineteen years old he's marooned in the Pennsylvania backwoods caring for his three younger sisters whose feelings about him range from stifli. Back roads meet backwards This is a story of a disturbingly dysfunctional family 19 year old Harley is a country boy raising 3 younger sisters on account his mother is in jail for the murder of his father Hormones running amok sanity on the edge an obsession with an older woman mix in an abusive upbringing and this is formula for self destructionThe transformation from child to man happens with the delayering of lies that reveal truths ugly ones He is in a constant tormented struggle with what he knows is right with what has happened in the past A coming of age story where good trumps over evil at the cost of self sacrifice This was an engaging read I like O'Dell's writing style and character development Although her debut I found it better than her latest release Angels Burning 4
