Rule of the Bone
I'm half way through Rule of the Bone by Russell Banks. It's a very heart-breaking story about a 14-year-old boy who leaves home because of an abusive step-father and a mother who given the choice between her son and her husband, choses her husband.
Chappie, aka Bone, meets up with several other homeless kids and adults along his journey. I'm anxious to find out how this book turns out.
Not a book for the faint hearted when it comes to street language.
This book was recommended to me by Chloe and Kariann.
I'll report back when I finish it.
