After finishing Slice of Cherry, it took me a few days to digest it. It was necessary for me to pull my thoughts together before I wrote this review. I finally concluded that Slice of Cherry's gory and murderous aspects contributed a grade of gritty excellence. While, the out of this world deliverance was just plain weird. Don't get me wrong, I love twisted stories, I just found this one to have a lot of "what the hell just happened" moments even after all the hilarious elements. Now, I immensely enjoyed getting to know the mentally deranged sisters. I mean these girls were on a different wavelength than most people. Kit started out as a bubbly character with killing spree tendencies. In contrast, Fancy's time revolved around preventing Kit from following in her father's footsteps which simmered her urges. I don't necessarily blame them for acting this way since their father was after all Portero's bonesaw killer.

As time went on, I was curiously intrigued in the sister's mindset change. Also, the boy interests presented with the Turner brothers helped spice up the lack of romance. As for the town, I didn't quite grasp the meaning behind all the monsters creeping around. I hoped for an in depth explanation, instead I was left with an undeveloped description. Throughout Slice of Cherry, Kit and Fancy searched for a door that opened up into a whimsical world. I loved Dia's imagination behind this place filled with wondrous aspects. All in all, the concept's originality was definitely there. However, it just didn't live up to my presumed expectations. Since everyone's perception is different, I do recommend you give this one a try. Distorted YA books don't come along often so I am excited to see where Dia's creativity leads us next.
