ABOUT THE BOOK
If you'd like to read the first chapter of The Ticket, go HERE.
This young adult book is about a girl, Tray, who is going through a very awkward stage in her life. She is very tall and thin and unlike the other girls. She does not fit in with what she sees as the popular crowd at school. Her grandmother makes all of her clothing which seems to make her stick out more. Her mother is always "sick" with some type of illness. Her Dad accidentally wins the lottery when someone buys him a ticket. Tray thinks is going to be helpful to her situation, but in fact it makes things so much worse for everyone involved.
When I receive a book from the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance I expect there to be a thread of that foundation: Christianity. I did not find that in this book. I found desperation and fear and very real life situations, but none of the hope that God can give. Speaking of real life situations, there is a very graphic scene in the book. A very real and possible scene, but definitely graphic.
Thank you to CFBA for providing a complimentary copy of this book for me to read and review.
