Sheri Reynolds allows the motivations of her characters to unfurl, crafting a complex story about three-dimensional people, all completely and devastatingly human. It is a story about family, about acceptance, about safety. It is a story that haunts long after the book is closed. I still want to go back and save Kenny.
