's review

it was amazing

Oh lord I loved this. It will inevitably receive all kinds of comparisons from Shirley Jackson and Barbara Comyns to the Brontes, but I'm definitely throwing adult Roald Dahl into the mix. Wickedly, disgustingly dark and funny, there is so much to love in this unique little coming-of-age gem. It's definitely chewy, and for such a short book it took me a while to read because it's not one to fly through, and I almost rated it a 4 because of this. That is until the end, and I just had to give in and give it the full 5. Genius!
