We Never Asked for Wings by Vanessa Diffenbaugh
Compelling and well-written, this story tackles many disturbing issues including teen motherhood, child abuse, rape, illegal immigration, child neglect, bullying, alcohol abuse and more. It also includes young love and is the story of a single mother who is trying to make a better life for herself and her children. Letty has made many mistakes and she is not a likable main character. Her son Alex, is more likable and his romance is sweet. I love the author's writing and had a tough time putting this book down. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.
