Published October 25th 2016 by Kensington
ISBN

I really enjoyed this book despite some of the difficult to hear subjects represented in the book. Everhart writes from Dixie Dupree's point of view and does a great job of giving the characters personality. The story line kept me coming back to check in on Dixie while she dealt with some pretty serious stuff for an 11 year old. I would definitely recommend this, with the disclaimer of be ready for some serious subject matter. This is not a bad thing, as the subjects need to be talked about (I'm trying not to add spoilers).

The Education of Dixie Dupree
The Education of Dixie Dupree - Donna Everhart This one I have to think over a bit before I try to review it. With the nature of the evil in this one, I first must reconcile it in my mind before I can share it. A full review will follow shortly on my blog.

My Review:
A story that is as old as families and just as sad as a child's tears. The education Dixie gets is one too many children got, and still get. Ms. Everhart writes with words that will bring you to tears time and time again in this sad story of a Southern-Northern family that tears itself apart and puts itself back together, but too late to save the innocence of a child. She makes you want to strike out at some. She makes you want to shake some. And she makes you want to shield the innocent.

This book left me sad and frustrated and not wanting to write a review. I recommend this book for those of you who read the real tear jerkers in women's lit. This one certainly qualifies. Don't forget the tissue box.

I was provided an eARC by Kensington and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I am not being compensated in any way. All opinions are fully my own.
