Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

I must start by saying that I don't usually mention potential triggers, as maybe I think they are of such a nature that it doesn't feel necessary, or they are mentioned enough in the blurb. But this book really does deal with some difficult issues, and there is little/no sugarcoating or off-screen moment. It is a cruel, harsh read, and it is difficult to find any positive points to a number of the significant characters.

Actually, more than anything, I found this a terribly sad and bleak book – and maybe because 2020 has been a bit of a year, I wasn't able to dissociate as well as I normally would, but I do read for pleasure, education, and entertainment, and I found it difficult to apply those here. It is well written, and sadly, I recognised the people in it as being drawn from the world in which we live. I was not convinced by all the twists, but did enjoy Lucy stepping up to be the reliable one.
