You won't be able to put this one down. A psychological thriller that has many twists and such depth you wonder how anyone could survive and be a normal person.

I was drawn because of the mother-daughter tension and surprised to relate to what was happening because I've known some children manipulated by their parent just as this. It was maddening to see how the mother twisted reality and easy to relate to the daughter who was struggling to find herself amist such deception.

This is definately one I will read over and over again. Have read it before and am happy that I went back to it just recently. Janet Fitch is one of my favorite authors!

Meg Thanks for the review! I picked this up at a second hand bookstore, just because I loved the movie so much. If you haven't seen it--SEE IT! It's awesome.

Rhonda Rae Baker I've seen the movie and the book is better as normally expected...enjoy!
