Oh, lord, this must be a horrifying book. I so rarely see you give half or 1 stars.

Yes, I don't finish books that I really don't like. But I usually only comment on it if it truly annoys me. There are some books that I will get through by rooting for the villain to kill off the MC, but since in this case the MC is the killer, I had little hope of that happening. Unless I hear that there is another serial killer at work who will torture and dismember the MC and her mother for my entertainment, I won't be returning to this book.

IT NEVER HAPPENS. THEY NEVER KILL THE MAIN CHARACTER. I know because in so many so-called detective novels, I was praying for it to happen. :(

Also, there were 92 instances of "as if" being used to describe something. It seemed excessive to me so I opened like 10 other ebooks and searched how many times "as if" is used and none even came close. "My mother batted her eyelashes and put her fingers to her neck as if clutching at pearls" And the MC is much more clever than anyone ever but she has to pretend not to be as smart to blend in w/ all of the less able minded kids in her school.
