Once upon a time there was a girl who was special.
This is not her story.
Unless you count the part where I killed her.
Sixteen-year-old Alison has been sectioned in a mental institute for teens, having murdered the most perfect and popular girl at school. But the case is a mystery: no body has been found, and Alison's condition is proving difficult to diagnose. Alison herself can't explain what happened: one minute she was fighting with Tori -- the next she disintegrated. Into nothing. But that's impossible. Right?
I couldn't finish this book and i don't want to give it a bad review but in the interest of honesty, here goes. I felt like i was reading in circles. The writing was good and the descriptions very detailed but the exciting moments that keep you page turning were too far and few between for me to want to continue. This doesn't happen very often, I have an insatiably curious personality so generally the fact that I've started a book will keep me reading it. All i could think about was just reading something different. I've read quite a few reviews for this book and it's getting a lot of praise, so maybe it's just not my kind of book. The book gets one star simply because i didn't see it through to the end.
