Book 35 - The Rules of Survival by Nancy Werlin

Werlin has won a couple awards, including the Edgar Award Winner, which means nothing to me, but perhaps will mean something to you. I picked this book up because it was recommended to me by librarything.com, based on other reading I'd done. It's a young adult fiction book about three children growing up with a physically and emotionally abusive mom, a manipulative and psychotic - but outwardly, very beautiful - woman, whom they spend several years trying to escape from. It was an okay read, though the writing felt "dumbed down" (that's probably the YA part) and the basic story was very predictable (which I personally hate). Nothing special. I'd give it 2.5 out of 5 stars.

That is really helpful. It provided me a number of ideas and I'll be placing them on my web site eventually. I'm bookmarking your blog and I'll be back. Thanks again!
