    " Its one of my all time favorite books! I has soo much depth and detail and emotion. I would really recomend you to read this book.

    (P.S.: The mother is a real BITCH!!! She blames it all on the kid!) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alexandria | 2/25/2011

    " It was such a well written book THAT MADE ME WANT TO CRY "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becca | 2/23/2011

    " This book has such realism to it. Its overall dark but has comic places. Its riveting. A total page-turner "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deja | 2/15/2011

    " Its concept is supported by strong writing, well-developed characters and the plot development is speedy but...

    SERIOUSLY LEFT ME FEELING A BIT SCARRED. D: D: D:

    It's the sparse description that somehow made the abuse even more creepy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alexa | 2/11/2011

    " GREAT book, finished in two days.
    Suspenseful, with sort of a dark humor, slightly romantic, slightly twisted. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Victoria | 2/11/2011

    " I LOVED this book. It's so raw and feeling, it's something that I wouldn't have the guts to write, but I want to write. I loved Meredith, and the strained relationship of her and Andy. The only problem I had is that her dad getting out early? That would never actually happen. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily | 2/10/2011

    " It wasn't BAD, but it was a little dull. It lacked... sparkle. The concept was good, follow-through... meh. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Iris | 2/9/2011

    " The storyline of this book can come off as disturbing but it's a real-life situation. It brings some many emotions and gives you perspective. "
