This book made me cry, shake with fear and wish so so hard for the freedom of the character 'Alice' as she struggles through her days of pain and humiliation at the hands of her kidnapper, Ray. God, I HATE that guy SO much!!
You really feel her pain, but you also understand and 'see' into the minds of all the characters. You see them stripped bare, down to the flesh, as the monsters/broken people they truly are and it makes you think hard about everything, esp. life. Do we really know anybody? Do we care what happens? When something isn't right, will we keep silent or try to do something about it?
I got this book, prepared for strong stuff, but nothing could prepare me for the brutal, searing honesty of it. The scariest thing? This could, and does, happen in real life.
This book is a real eye-opener and is written so well, you can't help but believe in every word. You'll take it all in and, though it may be painful, it is a good thing...
