This book is deep and dark, with nothing to lighten it up for the reader. Maybe because of this, I found it a very slow read. There were some places that I felt were too long, some bits that didn't really help the book could have been cut out - like the part describing Sandra's father. Having said that, I did like how parts of the story were doled out in tiny pieces, keeping me reading to find out what had actually happened.
The characters were just okay. It seemed they were all beaten down by incidents in their lives, nothing particularly good happening to anyone. This felt unrealistic, and some happiness would have helped the story and the reader breathe a little.
If you like darker novels with some suspense, this book is just right for you.
I was given this book to review by the publisher, Atria Books, through Netgalley.

Do not spend you money on this book.
The reviews were very positive, but I was disappointed. The writing was shallow and lacking any literary appeal. I was easily bored with the immature development of the characters and plot. I will not read anything else by this author!
