Different

This was not for me. I usually like the stuff she writes, but this was a bit....different for me. I did not go into a whole lot of detail, but it implies everything.

Shocking

I am not easily shocked but this was more than I bargained for. I could not say I enjoyed the story but it was well narrated.

Creepy!

Seriously, I was NOT expecting that. The creepy twist at the end shocked the heck out of me.
