Journal Entry 1 by msrubble on Saturday, April 20, 2019
First novel.

First-person, told from the perspective of the title character. Ruth, from a family in Illinois that struggles to make ends meet, yearns to be loved and appreciated. Her mother dotes on Ruth's brother, who escapes as soon as he can. Ruth is considered "slow" by her teachers and family. She thinks she found what she wants in the fun-loving Ruby, but he is irresponsible.

Bleak. Drawn-out ending.

Trade paperback in very good condition.
