Publisher's Summary

INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLERHOW FAR DOES THE APPLE REALLY FALL FROM THE TREE?

Good Me Bad Me is dark, compelling, voice-driven psychological suspense by debut author Ali Land: "Could not be more unputdownable if it was slathered with superglue." —Sunday ExpressMilly’s mother is a serial killer. Though Milly loves her mother, the only way to make her stop is to turn her in to the police. Milly is given a fresh start: a new identity, a home with an affluent foster family, and a spot at an exclusive private school. But Milly has secrets, and life at her new home becomes complicated. As her mother’s trial looms, with Milly as the star witness, Milly starts to wonder how much of her is nature, how much of her is nurture, and whether she is doomed to turn out like her mother after all. When tensions rise and Milly feels trapped by her shiny new life, she has to decide: Will she be good? Or is she bad? She is, after all, her mother's daughter.

"Land takes the reader on a terrific voyage into the teenage psyche...an intense, insightful first novel; its believable characters caught up in realistic situations will make the reader think more deeply about teenage mental health. Fans of Jay Asher's Thirteen Reasons Why will enjoy this book immensely." - Library Journal

    "good BUT it's a heavy topic"

    I literally could not stop listening to the book. the tone of the narrator and amazing descriptions brought the book to life. the end could have been put together a little more seamlessly because I could sense something was off but none the less, still a good book beginning to end.

    "Finished it in 2 days!"

    The prose is absolutely phenomenal. The narration is flawless (I've listened to 2 other books by Imogen Church and by god I could listen to that woman read a hundred takeout menus). The characters have so much depth.

    *minor spoiler* If there is anything negative I have to say about this book, it's that Phoebe (and some of the other schoolgirls) seemed more like a hyperbolized charicature of the "bully" archetype. This combined with her parents' lack of discipline made certain plot points just a touch less believable.
    *end spoiler*

    Other than that minor criticism, this was a fantastic book. Couldn't stop listening, like many other reviewers I agree that I was sad when it came to an end. Recommend 110%!

    "Surprised Me"

    I was expecting a "basic" psychological thriller. I was pleasantly surprised by this book. The writing made this book. The inner dialogue of the main character was gripping and convincing. A refreshing change from the other books I've read.

    "The Suspense within the Crime"

    Ali Land all I can say is wow ! You absolutely did that! It was some very impressive writing my dear! I love the darkness of this Audiobook. The ending caught me totally by surprise...I dont want to say to much but this Audiobook is well worth the credit. Imogen Church did a fantastic job as narrator 5 🌟 performance. Ali Land did an overall 5 🌟 Storyline..I look for more great books from this writer!

    "Amazing Narration and Story!"

    Incredibly strong, precise writing and narration. Difficult but fascinating material written with the skill of an experienced novelist. The Narrator moved with such ease between characters. The perfect pace and intimacy with the listener. An award winning performance in my opinion. I think this is Land’s first novel. SO powerful.
