Snow Lane by Josie Angelini

This was great, though one of those books I found distressing to read because I kept thinking “why won’t someone step in and help these children?” and “if this horrible cruel girl doesn’t get caught and punished for her abusive behavior I’m going to hate this book!”
In many ways it reminded me of Family Game Night--children in a house with parents not properly caring for them. I found it really terribly sad. I did wonder why it was set so specifically in the 1980s-it seemed like it was just so that the Challenger explosion could be included.

A fast read, very emotional, and a good story.
