Little Bastards in Springtime

My most recent Evergreen read was Katja Rudolph’s Little Bastards in Springtime, and I honestly think this might be one of the best novels I’ve read all year.

It was an incredibly difficult read, there were actually a few scenes that were so graphic I was almost sick (especially when I remembered they were happening to an 11 year old). But this is the type of book that gets under my skin and makes me rethink my whole worldview. And Rudolph’s writing is so beautiful, it has this wonderful dreamlike quality to it.

I wouldn’t recommend this book to everyone, but for the right reader this is one of those novels that will stick with you for a lifetime.
