Yes, it is a Rob Zombie song and sounds like a line of goth dolls. It is a YA (?) novel by Elizabeth Scott. It is really dark, and sad and chilling. And i read it fast and didn't like it much. It is written as a stream-of-consciousness of Alice, a 15 year old who was kidnapped by a stranger when whe was 9. She's raped, starved, beaten, and secluded by Ray, her tormentor. Now that she's not a child Ray wants her help to kidnap another little girl. I guess my biggest beef is the deus-ex-machina ending. I wanted a happy, as possible at least, ending but felt like the author kind of copped out. oh well. a 4. I know others liked it much more so i've linked them below. I wouldn't give this to any younger kids definitely. it's pretty graphic. But it does let me say i've finished the YA challenge! WOO HOO!
