  1. This book was sooooo creepy. The horrible things that happen to this girl and her family had me totally shocked. The voice was decent, but I felt the ending was too abrupt and too much was left unsaid, as other important characters were left to be wondered about. Not an award winner but definitely a decent read.

  2. I agree, this book was really creepy. I couldn’t put the book down untill I finished it and I got several shivers down my back. I think the ending was fine, but agree it isn’t a Printz winner. It would be a great book for quick picks for reluctant readers though.
