When I saw this book promoted on Netgalley in a swirl of praise I was eager to check out what all the fuss was about.
Annie has a new name and a new home and a big secret. Annie’s mum is a serial killer, caught because Annie herself turned her into the police, now placed with a family while the trial begins she is finding it hard to fit in whilst dealing with the terrible things she’s experienced. Her life is made tougher because the daughter of her carers is a bully who sees her as a new target, as she vents the frustration she feels due to issues at home.
The narrative of this story is absolutely chilling and creeps under your skin – it’s a difficult story to step away from, with very chilling plot lines. You feel sympathy towards Annie as she struggles with being her mother’s daughter, but then at times you’re left wondering whether she is too much of her mother’s daughter.
Without a doubt this book is set to be a hit this year, it’ll leave you with chills
