Lots of twists and turns

I received book for an honest review and honestly, I liked the story enough to move on to next book. I did have a little trouble following all character names on the beginning and I felt the Dr Stan link was rather weak. No follow up on why or past history. I did not feel as if Marie cared for him, and maybe it should have been this way. narration was ok. she had different voices but at times it was not smooth. The end was a shocker. This wasnt a who done it, or a mystery or suspense or romance, kind of hard to classify but would recommend anyway.

Not Alot of Cohesion

I really wanted to like this book, but it just lacked something. The premise is that a group of kids are taken and experiments performed on them. It is never really clear what the reason is. Or maybe I just didn't get it.

The story starts with someone finding a crying baby behind a dumpster and he hands her over to whoever these people are that are doing the experiments.Marie is that baby and the rest of the kids are boys. It kind of just jumps from childhood to adolescence to adulthood without much character development.

The writing was choppy. It sounded unnatural. I don't think the author used a single contraction, so the dialogue just didn't flow.

I thought Lori Faiella did a good job with what she had to work with. It's difficult to make a story compelling when it misses the mark so entirely.. Her voice is pleasant and easy to listen to. If it hadn't been, I probably would not have finished the book. I just didn't care enough about the characters.

This book was gifted to me for an honest review.
