Great opening -- poor Lydia has been pulled from her loving family to be placed with an emotionally distant uncle and his needy wife. What happened to Gran, BJ and Momma? Why is Momma in jail? You'll want to keep reading to find out. I loved Lydia's voice, and her development into a strong person is a joy to watch.
