en Limba Engleză Carte Hardback – 2009
Growing up in hard-scrabble coal country with a drunk father and a runaway mother hasn't been easy for teen brothers Kyle and Klint. And when their dad smashes his truck and dies after a few too many beers, the boys are shocked that their often-absent mother takes them to her new home out West... With Tawni O'Dell's trademark tenderness, vivid sense of place, and complex characters, 'Fragile Beasts' is a beautifully crafted novel told from two very different points of view: a 14-year-old boy's and a 75-year-old woman's.

"[O'Dell is] a pro at capturing dialogue, and some characters' wisecracks are laugh-out-loud funny." ---Publishers Weekly
