literally could not put it down My poor husband probably feels deprived Having received The Perfect Child free as a Kindle First February option, I honestly didn t have high expectations These freebie books are hit or miss for me Sometimes they re decent, sometimes they absolutely stink, and sometimes, they slowly mesmerize you with their intensity and unparalleled chaos.The Perfect Child was like thatit gripped me from the start and didn t let me go The characters, particularly Hannah, were so beautifully tragicshe felt very real to me I could relate so very much to her feelings, her anxietiesvirtually everything Having said that, at times I also felt frustrated, primarily with Christopher His choices and actions were questionable, even during the best of times But the character who had my jaw dropping at virtually every turn of the page was Janie HOLY COW I don t want to say much for fear of giving anything away, but Janie may be the best villain I ve read in years Little girl was beyond vile Is the story a bit predictable I d say yes, which is why I didn t give it a full 5 stars One of the main threads was incredibly obvious to me, but that took nothing away from the story line And there were a couple twists which shocked menot necessarily because they were unexpected, but because of how they actually occurred I can t end this review without making the obvious comparisons to Baby Teeth Clearly, Lucinda Berry was somewhat inspired by the Zoje Stage novel There are many similar threads throughoutbut the stories diverge enough to make them each incredibly readable in their own ways I m a fan, fellow readers I haven t checked to see if this is Ms Berry s first novel or not, but she has definitely become a must read author in my eyes I ll be thinking about this novel for a long, long time 4.25 stars flag 2 likesLike see review Feb 01, 2019 Emilie Rabitoy rated it it was amazing review of another edition This sh t will stay with me forever This
