June Bug believed everything her daddy told her. That is, until she walked into Wal-Mart and saw her face on a list of missing children. The discovery begins a quest for the truth about her father, the mother he rarely speaks about, and ultimately herself. A modern interpretation of Les Miserables, the story follows a dilapidated RV rambling cross-country with June Bug and her father, a man running from a haunted past. Forces beyond their control draw them back to Dogwood, West Virginia, down a winding path that will change their lives forever.

June Bug by Chris Fabry is an excellent novel. I thoroughly enjoyed it and glad that I read it.
The characters are so life like and you can really live the story through them. I really came to love
June Bug and her “Dad”. Usually I don’t care for books that are told through the eyes of a child/young person. To me it seems to be lacking something, but with June Bug it wasn’t that way. June Bug was not only told through a young girl, but also others.
June Bug talks about Walmart and WV which are close to me so it really is a down to earth type of read. Don’t get me wrong there is also lots of adventure and family tradgies that add so much to the book.
When you read this book you will feel fulfilled and hopeful. It has a wonderful, but sort of sad ending. I guess you could say happy and sad together. Very highly recommended. You will be glad you read this book.
