Blurb:

In many ways, Carrie Parker is like any other eight-year-old—playing make-believe, going to school, dreaming of faraway places. But even in her imagination, she can’t pretend away the hardships of her impoverished North Carolina home or protect her younger sister, Emma.

As the big sister, Carrie is determined to do anything to keep Emma safe from a life of neglect and abuse at the hands of their drunken stepfather, Richard—abuse their momma can’t seem to see, let alone stop.

But after the sisters’ plan to run away from home unravels, Carrie’s world takes a shocking turn—and one shattering moment ultimately reveals a truth that leaves everyone reeling.

My Take:

There are many secrets woven throughout this beautifully devastating story. Discovering which ones are true and which ones are figments of a little girl’s imagination is just part of the journey on which Elizabeth Flock leads readers. The real selling point of this story comes at the end. It’s one of those oh-my-gosh twists that puts this book among my all-time favorites.
