Synopsis: Annie’s mother is a serial killer.
The only way she can make it stop is to hand her in to the police.
But out of sight is not out of mind.
As her mother’s trial looms, the secrets of her past won’t let Annie sleep, even with a new foster family and name – Milly.
A fresh start. Now, surely, she can be whoever she wants to be.
But Milly’s mother is a serial killer. And blood is thicker than water.
Good me, bad me.
She is, after all, her mother’s daughter…

My review: There was an awful lot of hype written before I chose this book to read and I don’t truly understand why. It’s not a horrible book but any means but I found the twists to be really obvious. The description above leads you to certain conclusions and that kinda spoils the overall effect.

It’s well written and it’s fast paced. I read the whole thing in a day and still went to work around reading sessions. It’s enjoyable and I loved the first person narrative allowing us to see inside the mind of the young abused girl and how she forms new relationships with her foster family and school while waiting for the trial of her mother. The mother is ever present for a character that you never actually see or hear from. Again enjoyable

It could have had 5 stars but I just found it a little bit too predictable so a point lost
