I'm not from Florida, but somehow the characters and descriptions make me feel nostalgic in a twisted sort of way. I like how the story is not sugar coated, it feels very real and edgy. This book is a great example of how family, no matter how screwed up, will always be family, and can drag people back home who thought they had escaped. If you're into Grit Lit, give this a try. Its exactly what I thought that the unseen parts of Florida could be like. There's no amusement parks or picturesque sunsets here, only troubled individuals doing whatever it takes for family, addiction, money, and love. I think you'll be impressed.
