I liked this book but was unable to like any of the characters. The story takes place in Hannibal, Missouri, the home of Mark Twain. It was interesting to learn more about Tom and Becky and about Mark Twain's other characters. It sounds like a great place to visit for all its historical significance. The author also tells us a lot about the Mississippi River and what it is like to live near it and constantly battle flooding. The story is about Laura returning home after being away for ten years. We learn about Laura's family and her needy best friend. The best character in the book is, Bobby, the friend's son. It's a very hard life that Laura's friends and family live in Hannibal - alcoholism, drug abuse, poverty etc. The writing is good and the story is told well. Overall a good book!
