True GritTrue Grit by Charles Portis

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Although the narrator is an older woman at the time she is telling the story, she more often than not steps back into her young girl persona. Every once in awhile she speaks in her older voice, when she moralizes about events. While this takes some of the uncertainty about her fate, (since it is a first person account we are assured of her safe return, if not the specifics), it does provide perspective on the events.
