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.

 Angie’s Thoughts:

 Good Me, Bad Me is a chilling, psychological thriller that will give you nightmares for days after reading.

 I was hooked when I saw the cover and more so when I finished the first two pages. Intriguing. Scared to go on. What was I going to read? Playground? I have to know more.

 Annie is even more intriguing. Closed off. Secretive. There’s something about her that I can’t put my finger on but she has been through so much. Her mother is evil. A sadist really. That has to put a toll on a child.

 Annie became Milly and we become one with her. I start to feel compassion for her. Her hurt becomes mine. Her pain. Her loss. Her joy. All of it.

 This shows why Ali Land will not only be an International Bestseller but also a NY Times or USA Bestseller. Her writing draws you in like a pungi does a snake.

 The Verdict:
