The book has merit, but I couldn't bear to read it. Almost finished it, but had to put it aside. Unutterably sad. ( )

The author creates a vivid cast of characters, but I found them to be unlikable and self-destructive. Drugs, alcohol, child endangerment, fracking, Appalachian poverty. Perhaps an original concept, but wouldn't rate it worth the read. ( )

Beautifully written, but a very tense read as I waited for the characters' questionable decisions to come crashing down like a house of cards. ( )

How many times should a reader scream NO, STOP, DON'T DO THAT to every character in a three hundred page novel? In this one, you'll lose count as you follow Jodi, who's just been paroled for a murder she committed when she was eighteen, as she attempts to rescue the brother of Paula, the girlfriend she killed, from his violent family. On the way, she's taken up by Miranda, who's on the run from her faded country music star husband with her three young sons. Jodi's fantasy of making a new family in the rundown shack left to her by her grandmother in the mountains of West Virginia is doomed from the start, so there's no suspense in the quest itself. The only question is who/what's going to finally finish her off: her parole officer, her drug-dealing brothers, Miranda's pill habit, Jodi's own self-destructive tendencies, or the fracking crew that's set up on the homestead adjacent to the land that was sold off for non-payment of taxes while she was incarcerated. Betrayed by everyone except the little kids, a kindly neighbor, and a Mexican refugee, it's only the quality of the writing, and the nature of Paula’s murder, as it spins out in look-backs, that kept me from joining Jodi in complete despair. Not for the faint of heart.

Quotes: "She'd always seen herself like this, as if on camera. Under other eyes she moved more smoothly."

"When I was little, I thought there was a me-shaped space, and when I found it I'd know it. There were hundreds of millions of spaces and you had to find the one that was right."

"She could see now how she'd laid the old pattern over her new life like the fragile tissue-paper outlines used to cut dresses. She'd carefully unfolded it and tried to fit them all inside, smothering any real chance they'd had. She'd never even acknowledged the possibility of other possibilities." ( )
