Hanna simply wants to be loved. With a head plagued by hallucinations, a medicine cabinet full of pills, and a closet stuffed with frilly, violet dresses, Hanna's tired of being the outcast, the weird girl, the freak. So she runs away to Portero, Texas in search of a new home.
But Portero is a stranger town than Hanna expects. As she tries to make a place for herself, she discovers dark secrets that would terrify any normal soul. Good thing for Hanna, she's far from normal. As this crazy girl meets an even crazier town, only two things are certain: Anything can happen and no one is safe.
This book is strange. That is the one and only way I know how to describe it. The lead character Hannah is manic depressive and suffers from hallucinations. Her father dies and she finds the mother she never knew in a town full of crazy people. I'm not even sure what the actual story was even about, I don't know why a lot of the things that happened did. I guess the reason the book gets 3 stars is because how could I get bored when reading from the perspective of a a manic depressive who suffers hallucinations, it was intriguing to say the least. Besides that I'm confused. I'd say use your own discretion on this one, if it sounds good to you read it, if not don't. 3 out of 5.
