Smashwords book reviews by Kathleen Guler

  • Looking for Redfeather on March 11, 2014

    Linda Collison captures the voice and spirit of three dysfunctional teenagers, each running away from a hated life in search of something better. The greatest strength of this book is in the relationships among the deftly drawn characters. Beneath all the profanity-laced bravado, pot-smoking and underage drinking, these kids still find a sense of kindness and for doing the right thing for each other despite doubts, fears and disappointments. Collison’s descriptive writing summons the essence and heart of the old-fashioned road trip across the desert southwest, and in the process she addresses the desire to run away that haunts many of us—that sometimes in running away from ourselves we haven’t realized that whatever we think is missing from our lives has been hidden inside us all along. A fun, short read for the teenager in all of us.
