was asked by the author to try the book and give a review on it. Okay to be honest I don't know how to give this review. I liked the book because it was strange in a way that I can't really put my finger on it. It is a continuation of the first book. The main character in both books is Lilly who was born after her mother was raped by a homeless man. Lilly's mother is murdered by her step father because Lilly was born a addicted to drugs. That's the gist of the first book. This book wow how to explain. At the end of the first book there is a fire in a basement where Lilly was caught in the middle after confronting her real father. A boy by the name of Oscar dies in the fire and his mother is blamed for his death since he was locked in his room so he wouldn't leave the home while his mother Chrystal makes a run for the dealer of the street. Jervis is taking care of Lily by shooting her up with milk blood which has smack in it which he can't obtain unless the person just died after shooting up or he can take matters in in own hands. Jervis has his own ax to grind with the drug dealers on the street for what happened to him. Chrystal finds Lilly when she goes back to her old house and takes her to her house where the drug dealer lives and hides her in the basement because she wants to know about her son. In my eyes it's more of a horror story because you have to feel sorry for the situations that occur and you will probably scratch your head. The author tells a good story in what a drug addict goes through while he is high but most likely coming down from the high. If you like creepy stories you should read the book. I read it through because I wanted to find out what happens to all the people in the book because like in the book most people give up hope for one thing or another. (less) flagcomment · see review
