    "This has been an enjoyable read that takes the perspective of a teenage girl who is living through some very real problems in her country life. I enjoyed the realistic and well-written portrayal of life in the rural South. The book is also unintentionally nostalgic for me as it contains a lot of references to pop culture from the 1980s."

    "This book has multiple locations in it. From Kentucky to the west coast on the oregon trail. So I would so it doesn't really fit the hard description of taking place in Kentucky if it isn't a single location. "

    "I was born in rural Kentucky so I know a thing or two about how Kentuckians act and speak. I can pretty confidently say this book misses the mark for realism. Nonetheless, it manages to be a great fun read in spite of that."
