"So, Turner Buckminster III," she asked, "when you look through the number at the end of your name, does it seem like you're looking through prison bars?"
Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy - Gary D. Schmidt
I'm not sure at all how this book ended up on my kindle. It was suddenly on my recent list and, without looking it up at all, I thought "it looks small enough, will be a quick light read". Well, to be honest it wasn't either. I couldn't just gulp it down in one go it felt too intense for that, definitely not light.
This book is filled with emotion and excellent writing. It pulls you under completely and when you find yourself again you want to have people like Lizzie and Turner around you and light out for the territories yourself.
Highly recommend it.
