    DNF. Too many triggers in this one for me to push through. I'm sure this is a great book for the right reader, I just didn't fit that bill. I understood that sexual abuse was an aspect of the plot but wasn't aware it was the entire focus. Still wish the author all the best and am sincerely happy for...

    Very disturbing novel! "Rage boils up from the pit of my stomach, mixing with outrage in my throat"."It's not enough!" I say, my voice loud, just this side of yelling. I push back from the table leg and my glass falls over. Water seeping across wood.""Allegra is gone. She's gone! And both of you are...

    *5 stars* Amy Engel’s writing is as powerful as this story's subject matter is unsettling. It’s a forceful combination; one that had my churning stomach forever at odds with my growing curiosity and admiration for these tortured Roanoke Girls and their legacy of heartache. Roanoke girls ...

    I would have a totally awesome quote inserted right here. Except for the fact that Kelly 'the book pusher' and Mitchell may really share parts of my brain. I checked and she had already stolen them. I'll let her slide since she threatened me bodily harm if I didn't hurry up and read this one. Becaus...

    5 stars......my oh my!I am kind of upset with myself......how can I be rating such a dark and disturbing story so highly? The only way I can explain and justify enjoying this book as much as I did is that this tragic story sucked me right in on page one and didn't let me up for a breath of air until...

Lane has a cousin living with them as well, her name is Allegra. She's crazy as all get out but there are reasons. Grandpa is a very nice man to the girls. Gran, s...
