5.0 out of 5 stars Indie at its best, 28 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: ONE STREET OVER (Kindle Edition)
I loved this even more than its sequel, The Tree in the Front Yard. The facility on Amazon to self-publish for Kindle means that all sorts of stuff is now on sale - the very good, the good, the mediocre, the not-so-good and the tomes that makes you say 'shouldn't there be some sort of quality control?' Happily, it also gives you the opportunity to read really excellent books like this, for the price of about a quarter of a cup of coffee!

Kimberly Biller is a better writer than I think she realises. One Street Over, which will only take you about an hour or so to read, is funny, touching, clever, charming - I just loved it. You have to read it in a southern US accent, by the way! Ms Biller has the knack of making you see exactly what a character is like, without describing him or her; that's talent. It doesn't follow 'the rules', as laid down by creative writing courses, etc, but it doesn't need to because it WORKS. When you can write so that the scenes and characters come alive, you don't need to follow anyone else's rules! Some of the phrases made me laugh out loud (instead of Sissy's mum telling her off for being cheeky, she tells her off for 'sass mouthin') - and I LOVED the bit about the family's visits to the church.

Buy it. It's fab.
