Twigs by Alison Ashley Formento
I got this book free to review from Netgalley.
It kept my interest, which is more than some of the free books that I have received to review have done.
Twigs, just beginning her first year at a community college is a rightfully angry girl and has a lot of bad stuff happen in her life - and it seems to explode all in about a one week time period.
Her brother, a soldier in Iraq, disappears; her father, who ran off years ago, reappears, but won't see her; her boyfriend, in college in another town, has discovered booze and another girl; her job sucks, a crazy woman throws hair dye at her, someone slashes her tires, her mom is creepy and that is only part of it. However, she also made some new friends, learned a lot about life and the book has a happyish ending.
