Wow, what can I say about this book? I've been dying to read it and have been watching for Jennifer's new book to come out. I wish she could write faster. This is the 4th book I've read by Jennifer.

Regina, or Reggie, grew up with an eccentric mom. Always out with men, drinking at the bars. Until the day Reggie's mom, Vera, is kidnapped by a serial killer, who has already kidnapped and killed 3 other women in their small town. This book is about growing up, coming of age with an odd family life and trying to break out of it.

I really don't want to get too into detail because I'm always afraid I'll ruin it the way some Goodreads reader ruined it for me. I still totally enjoyed it and am looking forward to Jennifer's next one. I'll just end this by saying you won't be disappointed.
