The Yellow House - Patricia Falvey

This is really good so far.  The storytelling in this book is so rich,  almost poetic. I love clear, simple writing.  However, when you can use words in a way that it's... it's art,  I admire that talent.  


Though the main character has serious anger issues,  she yells at everyone! Granted,  she's been through a lot,  but my goodness... 


Line that broke my heart,  during a particularly sad scene: 


"I wonder how old you have to be until you don't need your ma to love you anymore. "
