STAR RATINGS GUIDE
A Chilling Exploration of Inherent Evil.
🧡 Can a person be born evil? That's the question posed in this disturbing tale in which a young girl is convicted of a brutal murder. There are clear echoes of the tragic Jamie Bulger case, something which stayed with me. I'm sure that's why this story gripped me not once, but twice.
💚 I'm surprised that I'm at odds on this one with other reviewers with whom I usually agree. Some said it was slow, but I found it captivating. What I'd say however - and my critique is in the spoilers - is that there are plot and premise flaws. I only deducted one star for these though because, were I not the type who goes away and analyses e-ve-ry-thing, I'd have just enjoyed the twists and turns.
💙 This was very much in the K.L Slater vein, which is always a good thing.
