True Things About Me by Deborah Kay Davies

Wednesday, July 20, 2011

This book is both creepy and disturbing and that's exactly what it is intended to be. Through a swift and light-hearted narrative the novel captures the reader by drawing you in to the mind of a seemingly friendly and fun girl.

However, the water does not remain calm, so to speak, as soon you are dragged under by a strong current which takes a dark turn leaving you  repulsed, confused and compelled to continue reading...

This is a tragedy like no other, the protagonist is blinkered from the real-life dangers surrounding her suburban bubble. Only the outsider (now insider as you adjust to her internal monologue) can see that she is in a destructive relationship that has the power to corrupt her fragile life and mind. This is not a book for the faint-hearted. I was swept up by it but then again I won't be returning to this dark ravine.
