Good Me Bad Me
by Ali Land
Millie is struggling to build a new life and a new identity.
Looming dark and menacing are memories of recent events which led her to leave her mother's house and finally go to the police for help. Looming even darker, are Millie's struggles with her own conscience.
As a child, she has suffered terrible abuse at the hands of her mother, but can she ever escape the darkness she feels inside and feel like other girls?
Will Millie manage to withstand the trial against her own mother, at which she will be the main witness?
To make things worse, the situation is not straightforward with her temporary foster family. Millie is jealous of their teenage daughter. The two girls hate each other, though they are both pretty good at hiding it.
This story is a brilliant insight into the mind of Millie as she builds her new future.
The question is - what sort of future will she choose?
I gave this book five stars for the story set-up and for the portrayal of Millie. However, constant hyphenations of ordinary words got on my nerves so much I almost gave it a four.
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley.
