About the book:

Will and Asheley have a troubled past. Their father left them when they were little, and their mother has just been carted off to an alcohol treatment center. Now, they have the house to themselves, and an endless California summer stretching out before them. Through alternating perspectives, they tell the story of how and why their lives spun violently out of control - right up to the impossibly shocking conclusion you'll have to read for yourself to believe.

review plate WOW! Simply there are no better words to sum up my review for this book. While I will not just leave you with that one word I struggle with what exactly to say. First off, nothing that I have to add about this novel says that it is awful or horrifying. Although, twisted is the word at the forefront of my mind for explaining what the concepts of this novel with leave on the reader. Will and Ashley are very neglected and abused children. With the abuse varying between mental and physical it seems from the start that these kids will not catch a break. One would be right in this prediction. If anything the story only becomes more wicked and vicious as the story progresses. The reality of this story is not for the weak at heart; many will steer clear of this novel for that fact alone. This is a book for someone that this not looking for someone building a happily ever after, and not looking for the sweet and innocent read. One that is in search of something that will stretch their minds to the limit; while pressing the boundary of what society will look at as acceptable. This is a terrible and frightening ride that will have readers at the edge of their seats throughout the last page. With a last minute twist that will have you with more questions than answers.
