The Deeper the Water the Uglier the Fish by Katya Apekina
"A beautifully written indie literary novel told in small vignettes, letters, and memories from all the characters in the story. There were so many layers to this story that it kept surprising and amazing me at the depth of character development.

“That afternoon was the first time I felt... I don't know how to describe it exactly. My head was in Dad's lap and all the happiness that I'd missed was being compressed into that moment. I looked up at him and I was no longer me. I was Mom, but not as I knew her. This wasn't her forcing her darkness on me, like a bag over my head. No, this was something else. I'd become Mom from many years ago. Dad felt it too, I could tell. Maybe it would have lasted longer if not for Edie, talking and talking, pressing and pressing. She wanted to take me back to the other mother. The one in the mental hospital who needed me brought to her, tied and quartered, like a sacrifice.”
Katya Apekina, The Deeper the Water the Uglier the Fish

“Rose looks at me anxiously, waiting for me to smile back. I do, but I wish she'd stop handing me a knife to cut her with. It's only a matter of time before I'm not able to resist.”
Katya Apekina, The Deeper the Water the Uglier the Fish
