Love can be a dangerous thing....

Hanna simply wants to be loved. With a head plagued by hallucinations, a medicine cabinet full of pills, and a closet stuffed with frilly, violet dresses, Hanna's tired of being the outcast, the weird girl, the freak. So she runs away to Portero, Texas in search of a new home.

But Portero is a stranger town than Hanna expects. As she tries to make a place for herself, she discovers dark secrets that would terrify any normal soul. Good thing for Hanna, she's far from normal. As this crazy girl meets an even crazier town, only two things are certain: Anything can happen and no one is safe.

This book was so weird. I cant even say if I loved it or didn't because it was both. One thing is for sure, this is one of the craziest book I've read. I felt I was about to quit reading at least two times, but then there were parts where I was like OMG, this is so good! But after finishing I think I would ask everyone to read it, it is so different and unique (and crazy) that I think it's worth recommending.

The characters were well done, -loved Wyatt- the writing was really good and the plot was... um, original. I felt that the world she created was hard to believe at first, but then I found myself wrapped in it and mesmerized. Plus, the cover, is breath-taking. I mean, it looks so good in your shelf. Sigh. Overall, its a really interesting read that explores love and acceptance. It has some supernatural elements even though I don't think it relates to any other book. So if you are looking for something different, this is definitely it!


  1. i can't wait 2 read it. it definitely compliments my shelf lol :D

  2. I love how you started; it made me chuckle :P Ooh, I should read this one :)

  3. Sounds interesting to say the least....anytime a book leaves you muddled and yet unable to let go of it, that's usually a sign of something worth exploring (I know, sounds crazy, but think about it...). Thanks for sharing....and happy reading!

  4. Heee glad to see the Bleeding Violet appreciation. It was such an amazing read.

    I linked your review here, if that's okay with you. If you'd rather I not link, just say the word and I'll take it down in a flash. =D
