Read in December, 2011

Told through the eyes of Jinx, now a 30 year old mother who cannot seem to love her son or anyone else, least of all herself. 14 years after the death of her mother an old friend turns up on Jinx's doorstep and Jinx is forced to go back to the time when she is a 16 year old girl whose life is suddenly turned upside down by the introduction of her mother's jealous, domineering and violent boyfriend. Both the friend and Jinx have 14 years of guilt and other unfinished business to straighten out before they can carry on with the lives they deserve.
A heart rending story that will have the reader reeling in horror and sympathy and will make you think twice about any domestic violence story you hear.
My only criticism is that the ending is a bit up-in-the-air, would have liked to have had a more certain ending but overall, well and sympathetically written.
