GOODREADS SYNOPSIS
:     

For the first eighteen years of her life, Rose Gold Watts believed she was seriously ill. She was allergic to everything, used a wheelchair and practically lived at the hospital. Neighbors did all they could, holding fundraisers but no matter how many doctors, tests, or surgeries, no one could figure out what was wrong with Rose Gold.

Turns out her mom, Patty Watts, was just a really good liar.

After serving five years in prison, Patty begs her daughter to take her in. The entire community is shocked when Rose Gold says yes. And Rose Gold is no longer her weak little darling…

And she’s waited such a long time for her mother to come home. 
MY THOUGHTS:

This was one of the most grotesque and horrendously raw books, I’ve ever read. I’m very familiar with the true life story this books was absolutely based on (at least some parts). It was and intense, nail biting read and I have to say I was enthralled the whole time.

Rose Gold was one of the most complex characters I’ve had the opportunity to read about. I loved reading from her perspective, it was just so intense. The inner working of her brain from all that abuse was so interesting and made for a dark read.

If you are ok wait reading raw, and intense books this one is absolutely for you. There are a ton of trigger warnings I would say to look into first. This was a great roller coaster ride of a psychological thriller if you need one!!
