Author
British. First novel. ‘Cosmopolitan' magazine, that bastion of literary criticism, hailed this as “this year’s ‘Girl on the Train,’ which was last year’s ‘Gone Girl’…," which was...

Precis
Millie, who used to be Annie, is the teenage daughter of a child-abusing, serial killer mother, and is press-ganged into helping procure victims for her Mum. (You think you’ve got problems.) Then one day she decides she's had enough and goes to the coppers. Our gal's dreading having to testify in court, but she's got other things to worry about in the meantime. While waiting for the case to come up, she's fostered by a well meaning psychotherapist named Mike, ever eager to counsel the hell out of his young charge (and write a book about it). Meanwhile, foster mother Saskia has mental heath issues of her own that she manages by substance abuse, as you do. If that weren’t enough, Mike and Saskia’s daughter is the same age as Millie and a real beeatch: the Queen Bee at school (Think UK version of ‘Mean Girls.’) Stuff happens: bad stuff. Millie eventually makes it through the court case, but dark secrets come out, yada, yada.

Writing
Tight, tense, chilling first person narrative with frequent flashbacks. Pace brisk. Characters well drawn.

Bottom line
It's not perfect but I couldn't put it down

Difficult to put down. Heart racing stuff.

Amazing writing where fear and suspense drew me along. The thought processes of evil sweetly evil and alluring. The brutal outcome was buffered by explanation of Milly's horrendous childhood.

Gripping

Just had to read this book in one sitting.....wonderfully scripted, I could imagine the characters and how they looked, imagined the home and the decor, the school and the smell of it.

Highly recommend this book.
