I read this book for the first time when I was in the ninth grade and have read it dozens of times since. It is a touching story about a teenage girl who befriends a troubled boy and helps him to overcome his problems while at the same time comes to some realizations herself. The story also gives detailed discriptions about life for the hillfolk of the Appalachia Mts. That helps the reader to understand a different prospect of life, while enjoying a great story.
