True Grit - Donna Tartt, Charles Portis

Do you remember the time when I told you that I don´t like children as a narrator or main protagonist? Well, give me a 14-year-old girl, whose story is told in hindsight from the point of view of her 80 year old self, and I totally love that child. Mattie is awesome, her journey for revenge is awesome as well and I just really, really liked this book / western. A highly recommended read.
