I think I'm going to have to start marking the library books I've read. I used to do it but then I felt guilty. Even though the librarian told me to do it. She came towards me over the counter one day and whispered that she probably shouldn't be telling me this, but that some people put a pencil mark on the page that is their birthdate. Then they can see if they've read it before. I'm thinking she may be "some people". I hope she doesn't tell too many people. Don't want page 20 to become full of little marks. Defeats the purpose then. The point being that I was almost finished this book when I became suspicious that I'd read it before. It is good. Not great. But if you see it and there's nothing else then get it. It's fairly depressing and the characters were so awful and morally repulsive that I was glad when it ended. And if there is a town anywhere like it – I never want to go there.
Now this book wanted to be good. It tried, but just couldn't do it. It ended up being too long and boring and I wanted to take the main character and slap her around a bit. But if you like Paulina Simons you might like it. Although I used to like her back in the days of Eleven Hours. I only went off her after the last book.
