1 word : unputdownable ! When six-year-old abandoned and battered Janie winds up in the ER, Dr. Chistopher Bauer and his wife Hannah decide to adopt her. Despite warnings that Janie's trauma will take years to heal, if it ever does, the couple are convinced they will have it all under control. Oh how so completely wrong they were ... Some readers will believe that this story is unbelievable and far-fetched but sadly it's not. Lucinda Berry's description of Janie's behavior and of her reactive attachment disorder is so on point that I wasn't surprised when I found out she is a psychologist specializing in trauma and children. Best to warn you that there is a lot of vivid detail regarding child and animal abuse ; not everyone's cup of tea. So why only four stars you ask ? ... The ending. If you can even call it that ! Don't get me wrong, i wasn't looking for a happy ending but any ending would have been nice at this rate. For me, this was the end of a chapter, not a book ... I was disappointed to find out it was over with so much unfinished business. I will still most definitely be on the look out for Lucinda Berry's new releases and I am already thinking about purchasing her older ones. Thanks to Thomas and Mercer and Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this ARC!

5 utterly disturbing stars to The Perfect Child! Who would have thought that you could be absolutely terrified by a 6 year old? Berry takes us on a winding and exhausting journey through the life of Hannah and Chris Bauer, who seemingly got everything they thought they wanted, and the nightmare they could never have dreamed of. I could not put this book down, and am hoping for a sequel with the cliff hanger ending. Thanks to Thomas and Mercer and Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this ARC!
