Martha Horgan is not like other women. She stares. She has violent crushes on people. She can’t stop telling the truth. Martha craves love, independence, and companionship, but her relentless honesty makes her painfully vulnerable to those around her: Frances, her wealthy aunt and begrudging guardian; Birdy, who befriends her and then cruelly rejects her; and Colin Mackey, the seductive man who preys on her desires. Confused and bitter, distrusting even those with her best interests at heart, Martha is propelled into a desperate attempt to gain control over her own life. The sense of impending calamity is almost unbearable in this portrait of a woman who teeters on the edge of madness.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Sarah Doyle | 2/4/2014

    " a very good book..Martha is alien and totally relatable at the same time. the writing style makes you feel as compulsive and obsessed as Martha, and by the horrifying climax of the book you can totally sympathize for her. a quick juicy read, that is disturbing and thought provoking. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Erica | 1/26/2014

    " This is both a disturbing and fascinating book that held me captive the entire time. It is a glimpse into a very different life full of pain but also a desire for love and friendship. It gave me insight into what a painful life some lead in a society that still is not accepting of those who are "different." "

    " i read this book like 9 years ago so i don't remember the specifics. seems like i might have also seen the movie...but can't quite remember. i do, however, remember that the ending to this "ok" book was awful. it was like she was done with the book but didn't know how to end it...so she just did. even at 15 i knew it was lame. "
