I really enjoyed this book. Millie comes from a hard life. Her Dad is a rodeo star who beats her mom and is never around. Her Mom, most of the time, is not there for her when she needs her most. Millie spends most of her time up a tree she calls Sweetie. She learns alot of tough lessons in her life. She also learns that it is up to her to get 'to the free". She meets a boy at the rodeo where her Dad works called Bump. He is very sweet and helps her out alot. She also meets a gypsy boy named River who she is very crazy about. Over time, she learns what really matters and that she is the one who is in total control of her future.I can't wait to read more by this author!
