    "And then suddenly it was over. The lunge threw him off balance and he flipped backward, so that for a brief shining moment he was upside down, his feet still peddling the air, and then the full weight of Samuel Hayley crashed down on the tip of the greasy pole, snapping the end of the mast in two, ...

    This novel is a bittersweet examination of a father and daughter relationship and a coming of age story. Samuel Hawley and Loo have spent most of their time living in places on a temporary basis.

    Why is it always so much easier to talk about things you don't like? I literally do not have the words to explain why I loved this books so much. It just felt so perfect. I love Loo and Sam and Lily and I'm so heartbroken that the book is over and I want to curl up and cry. I felt so taken in by the...

    3.5 I have had a hard time processing this novel, what to think, how to explain my rating and reactions to this book. As a thriller it would rate a solid four, the plot is different, loved the format and how we learn Hawley's back story through the bullet holes on his body. These chapters alternatin...
