characters that are in this book. It was fantastic like all of her others. I love her writing. Too bad there aren't more writers that can draw you in within the first few sentences.

This coming-of-age story is set in the 1940s during World War II. The narrarator is a young girl, Lark, who lives through tragedy and drama brought about by the people around her; yet, she manages to stay true to herself. Loved it!

I really enjoyed this book, the tale of a young girl displaced to San Diego from Minnesota by her mother and Aunts decision to escape an abusive, drunken husband and try to make it on their own during WWII. Strong characters made it all the better.

This was a really good story, told from the point of view of a young girl. She moves from the midwest to San Diego during WW2 with her mother and her aunt, who are both running from unhappy marriages.
