This book was a FANTASTIC read! It was one of those books that, once picked up and started, I was unable to put down until I had finished every last page of it! The characters were well-developed and complex -- some being easy to identify with and "feel for", while others are easy to despise and loathe, lending to an interesting and riveting plot. It is not hard to see how Beth is shaped into the person she becomes and how her identity evolves from stage to stage in her life. Regan will resonate with everyone who has ever felt like a "misfit" for whatever reason. The story line transitions seamlessly from present to past and back again, several times. Often, it can become difficult to follow a story line that "ping pongs" back and forth on the timeline as much as this one does. But, de Helen has done a SUPERB job of making these switches flow with a natural ease from one chapter and period of time to the next. There are some very well-done plot twists, and I think a sequel would not be remiss. In fact, I am fervently hoping that there will be a sequel which follows some of these characters further down the path of their life. *I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author and have chosen to voluntarily leave a written review."

I have no problem with a dark tale, in fact, I like a good dark, cringe-worthy story, but this was more sad than dark to me. I also like a good back story if it's important to the book, but the constant jumping around from past to present, in no particular order, was just distracting and hard to keep up with (ie. at one point early in the book, the chapters go from 2010 to 2004, back to 2010, then to 1990. 1997, 2007, 2010, and then 2008). It was also way too easy to figure out who the killer was fairly early in the book. I wasn't crazy about the ending but could've been okay with that if the story itself weren't so jumbled. Also, for those that watch for triggers, this one has plenty - everything from sexual abuse to domestic violence. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
