This is a dark and ugly read. It is difficult to rate as there is nothing inherently likable about the characters or the story the narrator is telling.Having said that, it is very well written and brings us in to the dark and harrowing life of a young woman who through no fault of her own has become unstable and mired in self loathing. I hard a hard time finishing this book as there just seemed to be no hope for this young woman. The incredible horrors she has experienced in her young life seemed real and believable which in turn makes it all the more ugly to turn the page. A worthwhile, quick read.
