I really wish I hadn’t read this book. It’s gotten rave reviews and it sounded really intriguing. It was super fast paced, page turning, intense, and well written, but it was just too disturbing for me. I had a hard time reading about a little girl being molested and then, as a teenager, made to act like a little girl for her pedophile captor. Halfway through the book I realized that even if she did escape from him she was so damaged that how on earth could she possibly return to her loving family that lost their daughter six years ago? When I finished the book I not only had trouble going to sleep, but I also had a bad dream! I loved Scott’s previous novels, which were very different in style and tone and subject matter. Call me wimpy or too sensitive but I really couldn’t handle this story at all.
