"I found this book riveting. The novel not only featured a down-to-earth, gritty depiction of life in the South during the Great Depression, but also kept me hooked. I highly recommend this book to anyone." - D.J."I've been meaning to give this book a chance for a while now, and it's official! This is one of the best books I've read in a while. I can't wait to get my hands on this
I needed to write a literature review about The Raft and Live From The Road books. I read The Raft with pleasure and got an A+ for my book review. S.A. Bodeen is a wonderful writer.
