Milly's mother is a serial killer. Though Milly loves her mother, the only way to make her stop is to turn her in to the police. Milly is given a fresh start: a new identity, a home with an affluent foster family, and a spot at an exclusive private school.
But Milly has secrets, and life at her new home becomes complicated. As her mother's trial looms, with Milly as the star witness, Milly starts to wonder how much of her is nature, how much of her is nurture, and whether she is doomed to turn out like her mother after all.
When tensions rise and Milly feels trapped by her shiny new life, she has to decide: Will she be good? Or is she bad? She is, after all, her mother's daughter.

**** 4 Star Review ****
Can you imagine having such an evil, vile person as your only caregiver? Your mother a serial killer. And not just a serial killer but a serial killer who preys on small children. The long lasting damage that could do to any person, let alone a child is immeasurable.
This book is definitely chilling and disturbing. It had all the things I love most. The writing for this twisted and demented story couldn't have been done any better. Ali Land nailed it perfectly! The past and present colliding at once, the emotions of a confused and damaged kid, and the struggle to survive ones past, this journey is definitely a bumpy ride.
I couldn't put this book down. I devoured it. It is so unique and thought-provoking. It gave me goosebumps and chilled me to the bone.
