Its hard to rate this book because I still don't know how I feel about it. The main concept is so twisted, immoral, and goes against everything I believe in, but...Its like a scene from a scary movie where you cover up your face because you don't want to see, but at the end of the day you can't help but peek through your fingers. I haven't read anything this controversial since Flowers In the Attic. It truly is a heart breaking story. An innocence is somehow found in a very immoral act that is far from innocent. In a way it potrays a twisted version of a Romeo & Juliet tale of forbidden, starcrossed romance. Though the plot is highly disturbing, you will be thinking about the book well after you are done reading. This is a prime example that not all stories have happy endings.
