Book Description

For Dean Lovell, the nightmare begins with a dare that comes with the promise of violence if he chickens out: He must ask out on a date the school pariah, a horribly disfigured girl named Stephanie Watts. Dean agrees, and soon learns that there is more to Stephanie than anyone dared imagine, that beneath the scars, there are terrifying secrets underneath...

A short story from the Bram Stoker Award-winning author of THE TURTLE BOY.

***WARNING: Contains some scenes of violence and strong language***

4.0 out of 5 stars First Kindle Book 13 Nov. 2011
By Sos
Format:Kindle Edition
Just got my new kindle so thought I'd download a free short story to see how it goes. I agree with some of the other reviews yes it was slightly disturbing, but I did enjoy it & read it in one sitting. I felt the pain of the characters as I was reading it & was totally engrossed. For a freebie I thought it was a good download & would read another book by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh my God! 8 Feb. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this! Simple writing style and believable time lapses, I read it in one sitting. The story drew me in from the start and with such an unexpected twist at the end my only negative comment is that it was such a short story!
Would recommend highly!!

Although it was a short story it was a good read....but I was expecting more and was just getting into it then it seemed to end abruptly. Shame really. Would read more of hurled books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great short story 29 Dec. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Had not used Kindle before so wanted to experience a short story on it before purchasing a book- the description for this free 'book' certainly whetted my appetite & didn't disappoint. Reviews already on Amazon also helped me make my choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars underneath 19 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read a lot of Keanlan Patrick's books on Kindle, and always thoroughly enjoy them. This one is very good, about an unfortunate disfigured girl, who no one in the school would want to go out with, except for a dare, or in this case, Dean, is bullied into asking her out with dire consequences. It's a believable situation, with a good twist at the end.

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit predictable 1 Mar. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Although I enjoyed this short read, it was a bit predictable. Nice but simple "teen" thriller. Not an adult book in my honest opinion.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good read, bad ending. 20 Feb. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I didnt understand the moral or the point of this story, the main character is stuck between a rock and a hard place, he tries to do the right thing, and only gets punished for it. The reason for this I still don't understand, and thought it made no sense, the author tried to create a twist and failed, as he could not think up a sensible reason for the cause of events either. This was a good read but ruined by the ending.
