The Blurb

My Two Cents

This one is a bit of a heartbreaker.  A well developed plot and fantastically developed characters make this book so enjoyable to read.  You root for these two girls and long for them to have a home and a happiness that is hard for them to even imagine. Definitely one of those books that I would love to see made into a movie.
