Sweetie / Review

Author: Kathryn Magendie
Paperback: 216 pages
Publisher: Bell Bridge Books
(November 1, 2010)
ISBN-10: 1935661914

Book Description:
For shy, stuttering Melissa, the wild mountain girl named Sweetie is a symbol of pride and strength. But to many in their Appalachian town Sweetie is an outcast, a sinister influence, or worse. This poignant and haunting story takes readers deep inside the bittersweet heart of childhood loyalties.

My Review:
First let me say, author Kathryn Magendie is one of the best new writers around today. She makes the characters come alive on the written page! Now about her newest book, Sweetie: it is the best in southern fiction; emotionally charged; lyrical; charming; unforgettable. I love everything Magendie writes! 5 stars*****
