This book was impossible to put it down until I finished it! It is seriously creepy and disturbing.This storyline is very dark, but incredibly addicting. I went into this book knowing nothing about the plot, and I honestly think that is the best way to read this book. I’m writing this review honestly minutes after finishing because I need to get my feelings out.

“Some families are lucky enough to never experience a single tragedy. But then there are those families that seem to have tragedies waiting on the back burner. What can go wrong, goes wrong. And then gets worse.”
I haven’t read Hoovers latest book’s because I have read some really terrible reviews, this book though is nothing like anything I’ve ever read before. I love thrillers and horror, so its difficult for an author to fill me with such dread and anxiety, that this book has left me with.
