We Begin At The End by Chris Whitaker

 

Hang on to your Stetsons and hold on to your heart...this book will break it for sure...Wow! This was absolutely brilliant. I had heard the rumors and I can confirm they are in fact true!  You will want to read this.

Why would a thirteen year old girl go around calling herself an outlaw? Self preservation that is why. Duchess has seen more heartache than most people do in a lifetime..by age thirteen....she is one tough cookie and she will do whatever it is takes to survive and protect her little brother Robin from the pure hell they have been through.

Small town U.S.A....right here...your police chief that you grew up with.. your neighbor still stuck in his glory of his high school days...mustang and all...the neighborhood butcher that everyone knew whether they wanted to or not...and Star..the shining star that lost her light..

The police chief is best friends with a murderer that has been in jail for 30 years...because he believes in him...is he being played the fool?

My emotions were all over the place with this book. It was a mixture of sometimes life just isn't fair...yet this is life.. the good, the bad and the ugly. This story was so well written and unraveled so perfectly. It was a mixture of family drama and mystery that will have you hoping against all odds this little family will make it.

Huge shoutout to Henry Holt and Company for my gorgeous gifted copy that I loved! This is a book that will stay in your mind for a long time.

  1. Great review! I've just started listening to this and I'm finding it a little ...... challenging. But I'll stick with it as you've made it sound so good. Carole.
