This is essentially an extremely twisted, strange, unusual coming of age story. I understand why this book is not for everyone as it is so out there I can't even begin to imagine what it is like in Dia Reeves' mind (The Author). I liked this so much that I want more, and plan on reading her other books soon! Honestly if you want to read a unique and creepy story this is for you. I was hooked after the first chapter

This book was gross. I really didn't like the killing stuff, but the story line was good.

Creepy, violent, and heartbreakingly endearing. The gore bothered me at first, but the more I got into it, the more I read it as a story about coming to terms with our darkest natures as part of growing up, and learning how to set ourselves apart from our families. Fresh and original and a great read if you can handle all the death and blood.

When I first started reading this book, I thought it would be sort of slow and relaxed kind of book but NO! There is tons of gore and killings. Definitely not for anyone who can't deal with reading about torture. Still an awesome read.

Did not like this book at all, and that is rare. Could not get into it, thought it was just gibberish.

Not for the faint of heart, or the weak of stomach. But most definitely a good book if you can stomach violence. Makes you question what makes a person a monster or a hero.

ohmygosh. One of the BEST books i have ever read! Had me and my friend captured right from the very first page! I am very very VERY sad that was over so soon (even though there are llike, 505 pages)! I definatly recommend this books. Unless you cant stand any kind of book with anything gory, or anything else like that. Still, really good book

A really creepy and wacky book... very original. Don't read this book if you get easily disturbed. I would recommend this for fans of Tim Burton movies

Kit and Fancy are the teenage daughter of the infamous Bonesaw Killer. Like there father, they're psychopathic and enjoy killing, maiming, and torturing people. At first, Fancy restrains Kit from giving in to her urges, no, not because killing is morally wrong, but because they'll get caught. Because they don't have anywhere to stash the bodies. This all changes, however, when Fancy find a doorway to another world she affectionately names her "happy place". Here whatever the sisters say goes, and they have a perfect place to hide the bodies of their victims where no body will every find them. Everything should be perfect, in Fancy's mind, but then something changes. See my full review here:

“I'm the Bonesaw Killer's daughter," she whispered, almost to herself. "Why would you ever think I was good?
