Winter’s Bone by Daniel Woodrell

Recommended by Jeff in Technical Services…

Jeff’s synopsis:
16 year old Ree Dolly is caught between caring for her mother who is mentally ill and her two brothers while hunting down her father who skipped out on bail after putting their house up for collateral. We follow Ree through the world of crystal meth labs, tight knit family and friends who take care of their own in their own way and the bleak Ozark winter.

He says:
Warning: this is not the Ozark’s that everyone wants to retire to. First there were moonshiners and now meth labs in a place where some folks are just try to survive anyway they think they can. This is a bleak raw story of a young girl forced to take on adult responsibilities while holding onto her dream to escape the life she is forced to live.
