by Trudy KrisherIn "Spite Fences, " Pert Wilson was the loyal friend who helped Maggie Pugh stand up for her beliefs. Now Maggie has moved away from Kinship, Georgia, and 15-year-old Pert is aching for something more than the tiny community she's always known. Her circle of trailer park neighbors and her supportive mother and older brother aren't enough for Pert; she is lonesome for the father she has never met. But when Pert's Daddy suddenly returns to Kinship and sets her neighborhood spinning, Pert is forced to reassess her concepts of home, loyalty, family, and kin."A painful story rich in local flavor and authentic feeling...a thoughtful portrait of an often fractious community, anchored by unexpectedly strong ties of love and responsibility." "—Kirkus Reviews, " pointer
* "Krisher. . . conveys harsh realities within a compelling, often humorous story of love and the true meaning of family."
