I read several reviews that compared this book with Carrie by Stephen King. Such a comparison is far-fetched at best. The character development of this story is atrocious! The antagonist is a horrid teenage girl who has absolutely no legitimate or discernible reason for being such a little witch. The authors portrayal of the foster care system is so ludicrous as to be laughable. It is obvious he has done little to no research before attempting to write this book, and I use the word "attempting" because he obviously failed at writing a book. This story seems to fall more under the category of supernatural teen temper tantrum. Mr. Tufo has fallen quite short of Stephen King's guideline to always write a story where the characters act true to their nature. These characters most often behave in ways that make absolutely no sense. A good story is one that will make you "suspend disbelief". The only disbelief suspended here is the idea that one is reading a good story. Do not waste your time with this. The only thing that kept me going throughout this book was the hope that it might all come together in the end. And again, my hopes were dashed.
One of the best books that I've ever had the pleasure of listening to! The narration is phenomenal as is the story.
