Annie’s mother is a ruthless serial killer, and her fifteen years old only daughter called the police on her, since Annie was forced to look during the killing of children, and herself was a victim of abuses by her mother.
Now the woman is in prison, and Annie has a new name, Milly, and a new shiny life until the moment she will have to testify in the process.
Milly lives with the family of the psychologist she is in care of, but it’s hard for Milly to join the new school, also due to her “step-sister” Phoebe, who bullies Milly with the help of her friends. However Milly is not so helpless as she seems.
The reader follows the whole story through the POV of Milly, noticing her weaknesses and her cynicism.
The novel is a psychological thriller, and we never know what to expect from the protagonist, since she herself does not know if she is a good or a bad person, and it is page turner till the end.
Thanks to the publisher for providing me the copy necessary to write this review.
