Dirty Little Angels

Dirty Little Angels - Chris Tusa
I had a hard time reading this book - not because of the quality of the writing, but because of storyline. The story centers around the poor and the broken: an alcoholic father that won't hold a job, a mother that suffers from depression, and two teens who try to survive with a broken down family that doesn't seem to care about them.

The harsh reality, broken dreams and lack of morals makes this a bleak read. It is gritty and heartbreaking, and to call it a good read doesn't really seem to fit. It is a captivating read, and no matter how much I wanted to abandon the book, I couldn't.

Parental note: Contains alcoholism, sex, abortion, murder, violence, language, drugs, and adultery.
