UGH! I don’t eve know what to say right because I’m torn between being pissed and in love! It’s fair to say that both emotions are trying to rule right now and each have a valid reason. This book has left me reeling.
As we journey from West Memphis to Red Vale along with Estelle (Star) we are given a picture of how hard her life is. She is a thirty year old woman that wants more out of life. She’s tired of just “existing” rather than “living.” Her relationship with her mother is less than stellar, and her live-in boyfriend is a poor excuse for anything that would qualify him as a man.
One night in a moment of desperation, Estelle makes a decision that will change her destiny. She’s finally taking the reigns of her life back into her hands. And decides she’s worth more.
This was a quick read. There were a couple of times I actually shook my Kindle from being so angry with some of Estelle’s decisions. And there were times that I laughed so hard at the corkiness that I had tears streaming down my face.
