Families can talk about how Sandy emotionally manipulates Bliss and ways Bliss could have been more forceful in standing up for herself. They can also talk about books and other media out to shock readers/listeners/viewers. Does this type of media appeal to you? Why or why not? Fans of the author can answer if they prefer this genre over her instant-message books or not. Is it always a good thing when an author goes outside his or her comfort zone?

Scary, but good.

My son Braden isn't much of a reader, but after his sister read this he decided to try it. He liked it very much, but said a few parts were quite disturbing. I wanted to see what he meant by that, so I read the book within a week. It was very disturbing and gross at parts, but otherwise Lauren Myracle is gifted with both genres, horror and light comedy. A good read, but only for kids 13 and up. (Maybe 12 if you know your kid.)

Best Book in the Universe

I loved it even though ther were very gruesome parts because I could feel it in my soul. I couldn't put it down while I was reading it! They should make it into a movie! The quotes were awesome especially the ones from Charles Manson!
