I enjoyed this book. However there were many gramatical & spelling errors. If you can get past that, it's got a good storyline that will keep you reading.

These were good enough to finish without much trouble but I got tired of the high school type attitudes every character had except Mamaw. Every argument in the book reminded me of my high school aged granddaughter arguing with her boyfriend and it got tiresome.
