I was appauled at the tourtures that he endured as a child and then again as an adult because of peoples stupidity. I envy Alex his friendships within the book, without frineds like Angie, Justin and Ben Alex's story wo [...]

    4. Whew! What an emotional roller coaster this book was for me. Entering the world of abuse that torments Alex was a dark journey, yet I liked him so much I had to know the entire story.

A little boy is scared and wants Alex to join him. Both Alex and his adopted sister pretend the inci [...]

    8. My Review:I am totally torn on how many ‘stars’ to give this book. It was engaging. The book was well written. The topic is right on queue for me. Psychics, paranormal, serial killer… It was really a fun read. But, I felt really disconnected to it. I wanted this to be a deep connection, one that would cause me to run to the book and turn pages with heated ambition. But, I found myself reading the book to escape life and because… I felt I had to.I was fascinated with the flashbacks in Ale [...]

    9. What Drives Us?This was so much more than I expected when I started reading it. I had to read it in bursts since the tension would have kept me awake nights!There was mystery, suspense, horror, romance, friendship and companionship blended into a story I'll not soon forget. I plan on reading more by Ms. Hartsock. Anyone who can web a tangled tale, with characters who leap off the page, deserves to be enjoyed, over and over again.
