A compulsive new thriller from Lisa Jewell. Deliciously dark and twisty with characters who live on in your head.
OK that should be enough to interest you. When she arrives at the scene, she discovers that her mother, a beautiful bar girl with a difficult past, was brutally murdered the same night she was taken, and no one was ever arrested for the crime.
But, she soon discovered there was more than one way to build a family. If you have a husband who plays video games more than he touches your arm.

We sang her a lullaby and then waved her goodnight. By hand. The Family Upstairs in one such book. The weeks before had been so intense, and we were — and would continue to be — under such watchful eyes So, in my head this little visitor had come to stay. It was just a bag, but I had really wanted to use it; filling it with nappies, wipes, a change of clothes, snacks and a book had brought me so much joy. I felt myself taking deep breaths, to feel that I could actually exhale again. Here, she describes the first day she brought her adopted daughter Billie home. This book was a disappointing one for me, too. She was always chatting, using a language that she had made up, mixed with a few real words and sounds, always pointing to things and asking what they were. We then turned the lights off, as she liked to sleep completely in the dark, and closed the door. It has made me so sad. Change, eat, play, sleep, repeat. He is positive, sensitive, good natured, great with the kids and parents and even handsome, sound too good to be true? She actually had a quite nice childhood for the most part, from my vantage point.
Nothing shocking that he wasn't Father of the Year material. Also proof he was a monster -- she sometimes had to babysit her brother AND she had to do the dishes -- by hand!!!! She could start by reading any number of memoirs, or even just watching the news.
In the kitchen lie three decomposing corpses. Jenna Tripp lives in the lower area of the Heights her mom has been known to think that there are spies everywhere and that they are watching her and Jenna and filming them. A whole new world and new people to get used to. If she was still a child, I'd feel sorry for her. For that alone I feel compassion for the child she was. She writes very well, descriptively, and engagingly; otherwise, I would not have been able to stomach this book at all. Caring for a toddler means you get into a rhythmic routine pretty quickly.
