It wouldn’t be easy to create a believable story about the life of a feisty woman who makes it on the streets as a homeless person, and still keep her likeable. This book does that. I particularly liked the tension created with the back and forth from an elderly woman today to who she was in her youth. It is well done.
I was drawn to this book after reading Water For Elephants. A book about an elderly woman who looks back on her life with carnivals and amusement parks sounded similar and I was eager to read it. It didn’t disappoint and I highly recommend it.
