  "Riveting, but not necessarily uplifting."by LovinLit (see profile) 05/26/10

The book was very interesting on all levels: family, mute boy, dogs, community. I felt it kept getting darker and darker as the book went on. I had to finish it, but at some points I was going to just... (read more)

 
  "A great book to get lost in"by DianeParfitt (see profile) 12/15/09
