It's not my usual practice to review books about cannibalistic tendencies of teenagers, but when I saw this book in the library, I was intrigued by the cover.
The first page hooked me in, and from then on, I was gone.
Maren is a young woman who lives with her mother, but on her 16th birthday, her mother vanishes and it's all because of a very unique problem that Maren has, she eats people. Literally. After her mother's exit, Maren goes on a road trip to find out more about her father, who she's never known and uncover the mystery of her cannibalistic tendencies.
This is probable the best way I can describe this book without giving the whole plot away, but wowsers, I did not expect the shock twists and turns that came with it. An incredible feat of imagination, this book takes you into the mind of the confused teenage girl who's suddenly got to fend for herself, and finds out that not only is she not alone in her habit, the others she finds along the way don't always have good intentions.
A few days on, and I'm still thinking about this book, which is always a good sign!
