Hmmmmmmmmm.--- Maybe it is because I taught science for a number of years, but I DID like this read. Gillian's family is definitely bordering on psychotic. Her mother had been abused since Gillian (22) can remember. Mum cowers to her husband. So, ever so politely, Gillian lends a hand to assist dear dad to fall to his death. Mum comes home from shopping and says, "I don't want to lose you both", insisting that they tell the story that mum was the accidental pusher.

The funeral and mum's depression ensue - during this time Gillian meets Daniel in a restaurant - and also Paul at the park. Mum takes off for a week to her estranged sister's place.

Weirdly, mum comes back a "new" person. Different clothes and different attitude. She wants to know everything that Gillian does, is demanding and downright mean. During this time, Gillian's relationship grows with Daniel - she also begins to visit his aunt who is cancer stricken.

Does mum have a reason for her "turnaround'? Or is what is in Gillian's "box" enough to drive her to
demand things Gillian must and must not do?

And...what becomes of Daniel and Paul?

I found this to be a good, quick read. Held my interest all of the way through.

Many thanks to Bloodhound Books and NetGalley for an interesting read.

I enjoyed the fast pace of this novel! I only hate hurting animals in this book. It was a little much for me but other than that I enjoyed this novel.
