Introduction

Pearl Water's childhood was shattered the night she stood at her bedroom window and watched her mother run away without a glance back. Only ten years old, Pearl was left to care for the family and take over her mother's responsibilities.
Eight years later as the approach of midnight beckons, Pearl finds herself on the edge of eighteen and running, as her mother did, in search of freedom and the youth she'd been denied.
But freedom has a price.
She ends up on foreign turf; a farm in Oregon with her volatile boyfriend, Roy and his family, who seem to hold even more secrets than her own. As time goes by, Pearl is drawn into beautiful but also tumultuous relationships with these strangers in Oregon, all the while losing a bit of herself with each drop of booze Roy drinks.
As secrets unfold, Pearl wonders how much of her own past is truth and what has been a lie.
And would the answer come too late, as her world spirals down into a path of destruction?

  "Run of the mill story"by Kathryneisen (see profile) 05/11/14

Felt this story was very predictable with characters that were stereotypes. While it was readable, felt the ending was pat. Not a bad book, just not much to discuss.
