Sinister and chilling . . . The writing flows beautifully and I felt like each character was confiding in me, trusting me with their secrets.

It's an amazing debut looking at the tangled web of a controlling mother/daughter relationship and a must read in my opinion * NB Magazine * Wrobel has crafted two gloriously complex characters who will swing the reader between horrified disbelief and empathy in the turn of a single page.
