    1. This one is a quick read, so my review wont be long, but make no mistake…it was a GOOD read!This book covers several of every mother’s fears; the potential of losing your own child, the potential of having a child you can’t control, and the potential of having to make a very difficult decision when a child you take in is WAY more than you bargained for, or could even imagine.This apparently sweet little girl, Melia, scared the pants off of me. She gave me the creeps to the max degree. She [...]

    2. My first M Jet read, and I'm glad I grabbed it. Short, but filled with devilish imagery. Reminded me of the Renee Zellweger movie "Case 39" in a lot of good ways. I'm glad the author took the time to properly research her Latin. I studied the language for seven years in school, so I hate seeing it misused. Love the clincher at the end!
