I was expecting this to be a good book. I've read other books by Louise Erdrich that I liked. However, this book left me cold. The premise is good, but I had a hard time getting through it because it just didn't hold my interest. I never felt invested in any of the characters and I didn't really care what happened to them. Kind of disappointing.

A Family Torn

A young man of 13 whose entire life changes when his mother is the victim of a brutal hate crime. For Joe it is a coming of age that could change the course of his life.
