What do you do when you’re too young to be on your own but have no one to turn to? Sixteen-year-old Wreath Willis makes a list: Find a place to live. Buy cheap food. Finish high school. Get a job. Go to college. Now she’s finishing high school by day and squatting in a junkyard by night, flying below the authorities’ radar while she makes a few awkward friends and searches for an illusory “good life.” But when a teacher grows too suspicious, Wreath is afraid she’ll have to move on before she graduates. Could it be this was a good life?

My Thoughts: Wreath is an excellent book that will be enjoyed across audiences. While it is promoted as Juvenile and Young Adult Fiction, it held my interest to the point that I had to finish this book the day I started reading it. Christie throws twists in the plot along the way that leave the reader wondering what else is in store for them.
Wreath is a young lady that will not let life get her down, she has goals and continually finds ways to overcome adversities. Although she may not always do the 'right' thing, she is a good person. This is a book that should be added to library shelves.

I'd like to thank the publisher for making a review copy of Wreath available via NetGalley.
