I was initially attracted to the book cover for Same Sun Here by Silas House and Neela Vaswani.

River lives in a small Appalachian mountain town, Black Banks, Kentucky. His father is a coal miner who’s had to take a job in another state because the work at home has dried up. River and his mom live with his grandmother, who he calls Mamaw, and he rarely sees his father anymore. Read the rest of my review at http://popcornreads.com/?p=3016
