One of the great joys of reading fiction is when one encounters that rare book that grabs you by the imagination and doesn't let go. "Young God" by Katherine Faw Morris is that kind of story. Her protagonist is a 13 year-old girl named Nikki. As the story begins Nikki has just gotten out of a group home and she's hoping to reunite with her father Coy Hawkins. This tale unfolds in the hill country of North Carolina in a place that is reminiscent of the area where the author grew up.
