Pearl isn’t your ordinary kid – for one thing, she lives in a broken-down car by a Florida trailer park. This unforgettable novel will guide into Pearl’s strange world, populated by born-again preachers, veterans with PTSD, two-headed alligators and lots of people who love their guns. You’ll either love or hate the distinctively poetic writing style and oddball characters but I found that I fell on the “love” side with this one. On a crowded bookshelf, it will stand out from anything else you’ve read.
