At Season's End by Eric Hendershot
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Eric Hendershot tells a story about a family of migrants during the
Great Depression. They travel back and forth across the United States
working whatever jobs they can to survive.
The book description tells that Sal and her brother end up having to
take care of themselves after "tragedy strikes". I expected the focus of
the story to be on how the young teens survived, but the tragedy didn't
occur until very late in the story.
I really wanted to like At Season's End,
but it didn't draw me in. I did find the migrant lifestyle during the
Depression very interesting, but the overall story was just ok.
I read an advanced reader's copy via NetGalley.com. At Season's End is scheduled for publication May 8, 2012.
