At first glance everything about this book screams creepy. The cover of an evil looking child, the little summary on the inside cover that instantly hooks you. However, this book quickly goes from a horror novel to something else and the children turned murderers are quickly on the back burner. This...

A completely new and unique take on the apocalypse, Liz Jensen takes a synopsis that could be a typical horror story and spins it into an emotionally wrenching, beautiful and ultimately fulfilling tale of environmentalism and familial bonds.

But I have been trying to read it for the past 4 months and I just can't. The first few pages were creepy and I thought the rest of the book would be like that, but the...
