  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? It's complicated
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


Such a twisted book. The main characters are “sisters” who grew up in foster care together and endured a rough childhood with an awful foster mother and her daughter. As the plot moves on, you find out more about their dark past and how that is still connecting to and deciding their futures. If you like a good story about family secrets, this is a book for you.
