  • 3.75 rounded up A Devastatingly Sad Coming of Age Story Winter Loon left me with a Very Heavy Heart Wes Ballot is a teenager who has always gotten the short end of the stick He experiences one sad event after another to the point where I honestly had to wonder at times what the point of the story was He loses one family member after another and struggles to be strong, and to find himself when all seems lost Yes, Winter Loon is beautifully written and yes the novel includes a lot of emo 3.75 roun [...]


  • Testing the waters is never accomplished within the safety of the shore.Susan Bernhard presents a novel imbued with the tragedies of second hand debris of life The hand off, the jilted inheritance, the receiving end of the deadly stick, the heavy baggage left in the wings by those who came before us Her main character of Wes Ballot is but fifteen years old But Wes bears the internal scars of hovering in the shadows for most of his young life observing and fleeing from the images of his alcoho Te [...]


  • This is a beauty of a page turner, dreamy, disquieting, and uncompromising to the end Against the tide of the wandering heart, the novel tells us, only love can offer us a place to rest and only if we let it.
