The Colour of Milk based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This story is as inspiring as it is heartbreaking. Mary is young and innocent, but far from naïve or simple. With a quick wit and sharp tongue, Mary tells everyone exactly how she feels…about everything. None of her relationships are easy, except for the one she has with her grandfather. As Mary’s story unfolds, you see the cage that is built around her and you understand how trapped she is. This concept is something that everyone can relate to in some form. By the end of the book, you’ll want to reach in and hold her, comfort her, and hold back what awaits her. It’s almost too much to bear.
I am stunned and sickened but somehow couldn't put it down. I immediately went to see what else she'd written. I love books like this where you might be able to see part of what's going on but indeed there is a twist in the end.
