Another sweet coming-of-age story that I enjoyed more than I expected.
Interesting reading this right after Saving CeeCee Honeycutt-- similar themes, but very different little girls!
Teaspoon (age 10) is the narrator, and it took me a while to get used to her voice, but I liked her. She rambles on and on.... gave me a hint of what Boo will be like in a few years. ;)
Even with the young protagonist, though, this is definitely an adult book.
There is a fair amount of language in this one, which I could have done without, but all in all, I enjoyed it. Recommended. :)
