I gave this book five stars because for one thing it is one of the best books I've ever read ( and I've read more books than I can count ).Itch will move you and affect you in many ways like it has done for me. I recommend this book for EVERYONE who loves to read books that make you think (or who love a good read)

Can it really be that I'm the first to review this?

A book about child abuse/objectification of children with believable characters and understandable, if icky, motives. The characters do what they have to do, so when the grandma moves to help, it's in an ill-thought out way that nonetheless is plausible for that person. Only the dad character was a little thin, but still worked.

There were certain dialogues I found unlikely--that were then revealed to be exactly right in the next few pages.

Oh, it's not all sorrow and tension. The author writes about girls being girls and a believable school/afterschool life. Her voice gives even mundane situations meaning.

I believe the author truly cares about kids in abusive situations and understands them well, and that this book may give certain people the strength to give appropriate help.

Love this book, it touches on serious subjects but is not light on humor! I laughed and laughed at Itch and her grandmother! A great read for adults as well!
