How far does the apple fall from the tree?

You’ll be asking yourself that question throughout the book. Milly’s mom is a serial killer, “the Peter Pan Killer” because she kills small children. Milly loves her mother, but the only way to get her to stop is to turn her into the police. That’s when Milly is finally given a fresh start- a new identity, a new home, and a new exclusive private school. But Milly has secrets and life at her new home becomes complicated. As the trail for her mom looms closer, with Milly as the star witness, Milly starts to wonder how much of her is nature and how much is nurture. Is she doomed to turn out like her mom after all? When tensions rise and Milly feels trapped, she must decide will she be good or is she bad?

I read a lot of thrillers, but this one sent shivers down my spine a couple times. The horrors that Milly endured were rough to read. Milly’s inner thoughts were also creepy, and you knew that she was deeply troubled. I found myself rooting for her and for her to realize that she doesn’t have to become like her mother.

This book can be a little predictable at times but truly leaves you with chills down your back. It also makes you ponder Nurture vs Nature. I highly recommend but don’t read at night alone!!

  1. I wanted to compose you that little bit of observation to be able to give thanks as before for those fantastic principles you have featured in this case. This has been really pretty generous with you to make unhampered exactly what a lot of people would’ve advertised as an electronic book to help make some bucks for their own end, primarily now that you might have tried it if you ever wanted. Those tactics likewise served like a easy way to understand that some people have similar zeal just as my personal own to realize a lot more with respect to this issue. Certainly there are some more pleasurable times in the future for people who read your blog post.
