Summary

Emily and Elizabeth spent their childhood locked in a bedroom and terrorized by a mother who drank too much and disappeared for days. The identical twins were rescued by a family determined to be their saviors.

But there are some horrors love can’t erase.... 

Elizabeth wakes in a hospital, strapped to her bed and unable to move or speak. The last thing she remembers is finding Emily’s body in their bathroom. Days before, she was falling in love and starting college. Now, she’s surrounded by men who talk to themselves and women who pull out their eyebrows.

As she delves deeper into the mystery surrounding Emily’s death, she discovers shocking secrets and holes in her memory that force her to remember what she’s worked so hard to forget - the beatings, the blood, the special friends. Her life spins out of control at a terrifying speed as she desperately tries to unravel the psychological puzzle of her past before it’s too late.

Pretty good

I didn’t like this book as much as I liked the perfect child but, I was able to get through it. Wish it had a better ending though.

Not a fan of the ending.....

I really dig Lucinda Berry. I really enjoyed 9/10s of the book. Felt like the ending cheapened it. Wish I could dissociate out of having listened to the end.

Painfully predictable

I don't know. Maybe there is a market for this kind of writing? Maybe people who eagerly await Hallmark and Lifetime movies? The "twist" about midway through the story was blaringly obvious, and the demi-twist at the end was achingly ludicrous. The narrator didn't even try.

Least Favorite From This Author

I've read a couple of Lucinda Berry's other books, and enjoyed them. The only reason this doesn't get a one star from me is because her writing style is engaging enough to keep me interested in the book. The reason it gets only two despite that is because this book is not what it claims to be. If the book claimed to be about a journey through mental illness of a formerly abused child, I would say it was what it claimed to be. But it is touted as a psychological thiller. I'd say it was the fault of the promoter not the author, but the author makes it clear that she's shooting for psychological thriller with the twists she slaps in there. The first "twist" is one that I saw coming a mile off, but at least it made sense, and the second, I saw coming and spent several chapters really hoping that I was wrong, but she tried to pull it off...and unsuccessfully. It made absolutely no sense, and seemed to be thrown in there haphazardly the sake of another twist. But despite the twists, this was no thriller. Shallowly psychological, yes. We spend most of the book in a psych ward where very little happens. Thriller...no. There is no mystery, no suspense, no thrills...just a girl taking a journey through her traumatic past as she tries to figure out why she is in the psych ward. The reveals of said past were lackluster, and the story itself was decent, but by no means new or edge of your seat thrilling. I'll read more by this author simply because I do enjoy her style, and have enjoyed past books, but this one was a huge miss for me.
