** TRIGGER WARNING **  Before I start my review, I wanted to highlight a trigger warning in this book.  The main theme of this book centres around grooming of vulnerable young children/adults as well as kidnapping.

Now that the above is dealt with, onto my review.  I had not realised to what extent the main theme of this book ran.  I have to be honest and say that this part of the book did make me feel very uncomfortable but I think that was what was meant to happen. 

We follow Lou as she returns to the town that she grew up in and one that she fled many years before after a traumatic event happened involving her teacher when she was a teenager.  This book does delve into the 'relationship' in the past with Lou and her teacher, involving the sexual 'relationship'.  All of which I found shocking. 

This book definately did keep me on the edge of my seat.  I had no doubt who was the baddie in this book but put in a bad situation it is surprusing how good characters turn bad in those times. 

A truly gripping and uncomfortable read that kept me at the edge of my seat.
