MY GOODREADS RATING 4.5/5 STARS
Sweetness can be deceptive.
She’s the sweet-but-silent angel in the adoring eyes of her Daddy. He’s the only person who understands her, and all Hanna wants is to live happily ever after with him. But Mommy stands in her way, and she’ll try any trick she can think of to get rid of her. Ideally for good.
She loves her daughter, really, but after years of expulsions and strained home schooling, her precarious health and sanity are weakening day by day. As Hanna’s tricks become increasingly sophisticated, and Suzette’s husband remains blind to the failing family dynamics, Suzette starts to fear that there’s something seriously wrong, and that maybe home isn’t the best place for their baby girl after all.
I went into this book not reading the synopsis, but by going in on the words of others saying it was so good. Sometimes I like to go into a psychological thriller not knowing much of anything about it. I feel like this is one of those books where that helped me love it even more.
I was so creeped out all through reading this book it made me really appreciate the twists and turns because they just kept getting creepier and creepier. At times I didn’t even trust myself to know what exactly was going on and questioned every character. The fact that Hannah is silent throughout the book really adds to the creepiness factor.
I highly recommend this one if you just want a book that makes you wonder what’s going on the whole time. I loved that the authors writing style really made the characters come to life. I wouldn’t read this one if you get scared easily.
