really liked it
bookshelves: arc, supernatural
Read from September 08 to 11, 2012

The opening paragraph hooks you in successfully, it starts off intriguingly and then gathers momentum the pace does not back down it becomes a see and feel adventure. The author successfully places you into an eerie sense of place with strange occurrences and creepy characters. It starts of with the main protagonist view on being a twelve year old that’s not quite blossomed as much as she wished. She expresses hows shes not fortunate like other girls who are showing more like a woman’s body. She’s displays anger with a clique group of girls who think they are are all that and more. The story does at times hit the unbelievable mark and goes a tad overboard with unrealistic happenings, I would have preferred less play with the Alice in wonderland kind of take on the story. All that she goes through would be laughable told to others in a school playground and would alert those from the psychiatric field. Would you believer her? The writing shows whats going on to the reader and makes you feel the protagonists experiences and fears.
