The Year We Left Home: Book Review

I began reading The Year We Left Home by Jean Thompson and didn’t get past the first chapter. I kept running into swear words, but was determined to keep going. I felt that as long as I didn’t have to see the ‘f’ word, I’d be able to stomach it if it was good writing. Within another page, I ran into the ‘f’ word but kept going a few more sentences. There it was again not two paragraphs later. I put the book down and would not recommend it to anyone. Thanks for a great read Jean. Have any of you read The Year We Left Home? What’s your opinion? -Julie L. Spencer
