Combination of stories that teach different lessons like by trying to do bad things towards others bad things can happen to you, beauty is not just skin deep but that doesn't mean some people don't judge others based on appearance, don't loose touch with what's real, etc. I love at the end were the author does an afterward and explains the how/why each story was created.

This is one of those book that I'm afraid to read again . Not because it's scary or because it a horrible book but simply because it is so good that it captive my heart every time I read it . When I read the bood I feel all the emotion that the characters in the book feel . I have the feeling that I feel for them even more for they feel for themselve . It a really scary feeling since all the book end in a sad way that make me upset ( not at the author , mind you , it a good book , she really done a good job ) but at the story somehow I forgot it just a written-story but began to think of it as a real-life happen story . I love it .

It was a great and amazing book, that I couldn't put down till I was done with it. I thought it was great and very well written. I plan on reading many more books by the same author. She is a great short story wirter and (even by reading one of her books) one of my favorite.
