    Another disturbing, dark, nail biter story based on true events And I loved to spend time at Cassie s head and seeing events at 80 s Minnesota from her eyes She was thirteen, smart, mature from her peers, a little quirky but in an adorable way , coming from not so wealthy and dysfunctional family, dealing with his mostly drunk, artistic father s mood swings and anger management problems as her mother acts like they r

    For some reason, I glanced at this book yesterday and almost set it aside as one I d get to later, if I had time But then something kept drawing me to it and after picking it up and putting it down a few times, something about it just called to me and I decided to pick this up and once I did, I didn t put it down until I was done reading So if you have this on your shelf anywhere, I recommend you don t pass this one up and READ IT A

    This book sorely disappointed me Based on a true story, it was only about a third of the book The crimes weren t really revealed and whodunit was easy to figure out 2 3rds of this book was way over descriptive sentences where the author fancied herself witty It took me far too long to read this book, dragging myself along and honestly for the synapsis it was boring Do not recommend.
