    Great Read!

    Truly an amazing piece of work. At some point in time, I think that we can all relate to a part of Sam's story, especially those who live in a small town. The author uses so many details and different characters, puts so much emotion into each chapter, and shows an extreme depth in thinking. For me, it wasn't possible to put it down before finishing it.

    hilariously dark, touchingly sad, and yet hopeful delightful and actually made me look at my grocery clerk in a new light.
    As a customer even I can relate to much of what happens with Sam Gyle, a grocery clerk that survives a drive by-shooting.
    Definitely will reccommend to my other stay-at-home mom friends!
