This book is about so much more than Travis's poor decisions (many of which I found implausible).
It's about attitudes and practices of wealthy vs. poor, and how people can help if they just trust their instincts and listen to/care about people with whom they come in contact.
As the characters came to know each other better, they understood so much more about the other person and about themselves, too.
Despite my frustration with Travis's crazy decisions, I enjoyed this novel very much.

What a page turner! I felt particularly drawn to the character of Travis from the very start, and was hoping, as the story unfolded, that he would overcome the hardships that he had been unfairly dealt in his life. I also liked how the author at the end was able to provide the reader with a quick glimpse of where the main characters were in their life a year later. A very touching and heart-warming story. Would highly recommend!
