This book is up for the 2018 Sasquatch Award which is why I started listening to it. I finished listening to it because there is no way I could let these kids go without knowing what happened to them. The characters are amazing in this book! The mother was a problem for me because she was brutal but we move on from her presence quickly if not the results of her cruelty. An absolutely amazing book read by an incredible reader (Entwhistle). Happily there is a sequel in the works so we can continue to watch these characters grow.
