Tomato Girl

I started "Tomato Girl" on Saturday, and finished it on Sunday. That qualifies for my "page turner" award. If you have read and enjoyed "Ellen Foster" by Kaye Gibbons, you will most likely enjoy this book too. "Tomato Girl" is about a young girl living with a mother who is mentally ill. It is a story about both triumph and tragedy. I seem to navigate towards books that feature the main character overcoming a great deal of trauma in their life. This is one of those books. It reminds me somewhat of the Jeanette Walls book "The Glass Castle". It is not an escape book, but it is well worth the effort to read. What are you reading?
