Review & Giveaway: The Outside Boy by Jeanine Cummins


Christy feels like an outcast, he is constantly traveling with his family. He is told that his mother passed away when he was an infant. But when Christy's cousin is getting ready to set the wagon carrying his dead grandfather on fire, Christy spots a newspaper picture. This picture has him questioning everything he's believed in his whole life. Who is this woman and why does he feel such a strong connection to her? He sets out to find the truth about who he is and where he comes from. Will he come to peace with the life he lives or will everything this new information destroy him?

Two words: loved it! I fell into this novel right away and didn't even come up for air.
