Sweetness can be deceptive.
Meet seven-year-old Hanna. She’s the sweetest and the smartest. At least, when she’s around her adoring father, Alex. All she wants is to live happily with him, but one person stands in the way—her mommy, Suzette. And Hanna is willing to do anything to have Mommy out of the picture, indefinitely.
While she’s been homeschooling Hanna for years, Suzette starts to wonder where she’d gone wrong. Has she been a neglectful parent? Had she missed something? And why does her own daughter seem to hate her? Hanna doesn’t speak and Suzette and Alex have never been successful at keeping their daughter in school. With Hanna’s unusual and disturbing behavior, Suzette fears that something is seriously wrong with Hanna. The problem, however, is that Alex doesn’t see it; all he sees is Hanna’s sweetness toward him. Could he possibly be in denial? The longer this keeps up, the sooner Suzette just might be on the brink of insanity. How can she prove to her husband that their sweet, little Hanna might be dangerous?
Indeed, Hanna is quite a disturbed little girl and I really wanted to know the reason behind her detailed, graphic imagination. It definitely didn’t end the way I’d expected, but it was still pretty good, but I won’t spoil a thing. No matter, I encourage you to read this one. Who’s side will you take? Hanna’s? Or Suzette’s? Feel free to post your comments. Happy reading!
