(view spoiler)[Loved this book and loved Never Smile at Strangers, which I read first, but my question is am I mistaken in thinking that Allie is Seacrest from NSSAS? The reason I ask is that it seems to be said on more than one occasion that Allie has never had a girl friend but wasn't she friends with Hayley's sister Becky? (hide spoiler)]
Kira Flowerchild Yes, Allie is Seacrest. Her relationship with Becky in NSAS was more sadomasochistic than BFFs. She was always putting Becky down, calling her fat and ugly, saying her freckles were ugly and her skin was too pale. Maybe the author didn't consider that a true friendship.
