June Bug believed everything her daddy told her. That is, until she walked into Wal-Mart and saw her face on a list of missing children. The discovery begins a quest for the truth about her father, the mother he rarely speaks about, and ultimately herself. A modern interpretation of Les Miserables, the story follows a dilapidated RV rambling cross-country with June Bug and her father, a man running from a haunted past. Forces beyond their control draw them back to Dogwood, West Virginia, down a winding path that will change their lives forever.

I found this story to be a little too sad.

June Bug is a 9 year old girl who has spent her life driving across America in an old RV with her dad, a man with a troubled past. Their life is quite happy until the girl sees her picture on a “Missing Child” poster at Wal-Mart. The discovery starts June Bug on a journey of looking for the truth about her father and her family. Although June Bug is the novel’s protagonist, the story line is presented through the eyes of several narrators allowing for the pieces of the puzzle to come together while keeping the reader hooked. The story is one of adventure, self-discovery and familial ties that can never be broken. The novel also has a hint of detective mystery as June Bug’s past is investigated by other characters in the book. The book contains Christian undertones, as various characters take the strength needed from their religious beliefs without presenting an overpowering “preachy” dogma. Chris Fabry is the author of “Dogwood” with excellent reviews and Christ Award for this first novel in 2009

Great story. The author does a good job capturing the speech of the young girl.
