How far does the apple really fall from the tree?
BookSparks’ Fall Reading Challenge 2017 kicks off with Ali Land’s, GOOD ME, BAD ME (FLATIRONBooks). Hold on to your knickers, peeps, because this one is going to freak you out – I promise! It totally took me by surprise for its totally out-of-the-box, originality and Ali Land’s compelling narrative. Trust me, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
Fifteen year-old, Milly’s mother is a serial killer. The only way for her to get mummy-dearest to stop killing, is to turn her into the police. Milly is given a new identity, a home with a wealthy family, including new clothes and an allowance, as well as entrance to an exclusive private school.
But Milly has secrets and as the trial gets closer, she starts wondering if she’s destined to become a serial killer like her mother. Milly is surrounded by psychological experts to help her prep for the trial, and tries to attend school like any normal student, but she has to deal with the family’s daughter from hell. Tension continues to build, relationships cross boundaries, while Milly has to decide: Is she good? Or is she bad?
GOOD ME, BAD ME is a fast read. It kept me flipping the pages and delivered a surprising ending. I have to point out one observation. Ali included the phrase, “Tick Tock. Tick,” which is becoming a cliche in many new popular psycholigical thrillers. She didn’t need to. Her own prose are much more compelling.
