I loved every twist and turn of this book and just loved going alone for the ride of this twisted world Evie lives in. I love that Evie is so strong but people want her to think she is dumb and fit into the mold the make for her. Evie is anything but dumb and is not a sheep someone can herd . My favorite seen and while after you read it you will know what I am talking about I dont feel it is a spoiler. I love when someone is singing a song and Gavin ask Evie what he is saying and Evie says he is signing a children's song. Gavin freaks saying basically what kind of song is that? I am not quoting it i don't want to ruin it. It made me laugh and was my favorite scene. Gavin is so endearing. He finds this creepy underground world and finds himself on a rollercoaster so o speak. He is intrigued by Evie and wants to get to know the real her. Now I loved this book so much and After I read it and read J.A. Souders Author description of herself in the back of the book I was in my car listening to the radio and Eminem and Rihanna song Monster and that sums up this book for me. There is manipulation at it's finest and Mother didn't know when enough was enough. Mother is the perfect villian you love to hate her. I am giving this book 5 out of 5 stars. A must read!show moreby Fallon
