I read this when I was a young teen, and I recently reread it as an adult.

Everything reminds Vicki of the accident. At breakfast, her family only eats blood-like foods, from tomato juice to clots of raspberry jam. At dinner they eat rare roast beef.

Although I did like it. There didn't seem to be a lot going on. But it did startle me towards the end.
I read this years ago when I was middle school age. I remember liking it.
I really enjoyed this when i was younger. Its a good quick read now!
This was a fun read when I was really a young teen!
One of my childhood favorites.
