How far does the apple really fall from the tree?

Milly’s mother is a serial killer. Though Milly loves her mother, the only way to make her stop is to turn her in to the police. Milly is given a fresh start: a new identity, a home with an affluent foster family, and a spot at an exclusive private school.

But Milly has secrets, and life at her new home becomes complicated. As her mother’s trial looms, with Milly as the star witness, Milly starts to wonder how much of her is nature, how much of her is nurture, and whether she is doomed to turn out like her mother after all.

When tensions rise and Milly feels trapped by her shiny new life, she has to decide: Will she be good? Or is she bad? She is, after all, her mother’s daughter.


Finally, I’ve had some free time to time to tell you a few words about this book.

It’s one of the best books I’ve read in 2017 and without wanting, I compare it with Behind Her Eyes, another good book, if you ask me.

The book describes the life of an adolescent girl, who is taken in by a psychologist’s family after her mother was imprisoned for murdering all the children left on her care. She is struggling to discover if she is a good person, or a bad person, exactly as her mother is.

What I loved about this book is how it was written. So easy to read and understand it, the characters were so easily drawn, especially the main ones. 

If you haven’t read this book yet, make sure you check it out.
