This book is a chilling portrayal of what it is like to live with infertility, the costs of adoption, dealing with the mental aftermath of childhood trauma, and the toll it takes on marriages. Janie’s extreme form of reactive attachment disorder is the only part that seems too exaggerated to be realistic, but I’m no expert and have never heard of this disorder before. I had more to do with Hannah, but I hated Chris’ wayward, naïve character with a burning passion like a thousand suns. Piper tried to help the Bauers but was unprofessional and uncommunicative. At the end of the story, I had a hard time deciding who the antagonist was.

Writing made my heart race as I was angry, horrified, disturbed and heartbroken by the vivid imagery and the somber results. I was captivated by Janie’s hidden evil, Hannah and Chris’ unwavering kindness, and Janie’s turbulent adoption journey. Unfortunately the ending was a disappointment. It left me completely dissatisfied with too many unanswered questions. Someone told me I could find the original ending on Lucinda Berry’s Facebook page. I found this video of her reading the original ending and it tied up all the loose ends. This would be a great read for someone who loves addictive and potentially traumatic late night tension that is sure to leave a book hangover.

As someone who has been involved in childcare intermittently for about twenty years, I found the book realistic in some respects and not very accurate in others, but overall the author seems to have a good understanding of how the system works and how it works . it often fails. In the first half of the book, the adoptive father is really portrayed as the very naive, even ignorant man, especially for a doctor. As the book progressed I felt a little more empathy for him, but not much. It’s unfortunate that this man was such a fan of a cute but ultimately bad girl, but that’s how men are often portrayed in books and movies like this.

I realized that a lot of customer reviews focus on depicting animal cruelty, so I was surprised to see so many things that worried me even more. I’m not trying to downplay what happened to the cat in the story, but after reading the book I’m surprised that so many people find this to be the most disturbing part of this depressing story.

I would have liked to have read more about what happened to this girl when she was with her birth mother, but despite the twist in the plot towards the end, not much is revealed about the girl’s early years. Was there physical and/or sexual abuse by the child’s birth mother and/or father or their friends? Are there genetic factors? The book implies that the girl was downright evil and would have been regardless of where she was born.

Essentially, here you have a contemporary take on The Bad Seed, starring an aspiring teenage serial killer. What is missing is an explanation of why and how. It’s not a horror novel, at least by my definition, that would involve the supernatural. It is never implied that she is possessed by a demon or that she is a daughter of the devil like in the movie Case 39. Also, the author seems to know little about how child abuse investigations are conducted, unlike the individuals who involved case. production of Case 39, and luckily the people who adopted them didn’t just go to an orphanage and pick them out like the parents did in the movie Orphan.

Overall it was a lot better than I thought after the first half of the book when I considered putting it down and reading something else. I would like to see some more gaps filled, especially in the early stages of the girl’s life.
