I hear screams in my head. I see blood on my hands. When I look in the mirror, I see a stranger.
How is it that I can remember bits and pieces of my life, but nothing of any importance and nothing that makes any sense? Everything is twisted and nothing is right. I'm choking with every breath I take, suffocating on the unknown.
Two days ago, everything changed. Two days ago, the people I should trust the most became strangers in my convoluted head. The dreams I have can't be real. The fleeting memories that whisper through my mind are scary and wrong...they have to be. If they aren't, I have something much worse to fear than my fractured mind. I need to find out the truth, even if it destroys me.
I've been told my name is Ravenna Duskin. I'm 18 years old, and I live in a prison....

“My name is Ravenna Duskin, I’m 18 years old, I live in a prison and I’m pretty sure I’m not a good girl.”
The words keep ringing in your ears until the end of this creepy, dark, shivering book and the moment you’ve learned it and you too are repeating them, things take a huge 360 degree turn, the world around the story, everything that you had possibly imagined, all the dark thrillers you must have read take on a new direction with Tara Sivec’s mind-numbingly awesome thriller.
Don’t be fooled, the characters are pitiful, hateful and more or less annoying and yet you will end up with a wicked smile on your face. But to get all the chills, all you have to do is stick to it until the end, gather up all the pieces and have questions in your mind which will be answered, even the questions you wouldn’t have thought of.
Set in the 1960’s, a girl named Ravenna Duskin wakes up to a head injury and all she has been told by her parents seems out of place, totally wrong. How could their parents not know their daughter who has been with them for about 18 years? Everything that her Mom does is wrong, Ravenna hates it when she is told how she makes her hair, how she dresses up, who is her best friend? All Ravenna wants is to know the truth. All she wants to know is what happened on the night of the accident, why was she running in the woods, what had happened to scare her off so bad that her parents wouldn’t tell her about that night. Well my friend, just read this pretty thing and you are definitely bound to the edge of your seat while Tara Sivec takes you on an extra-ordinary journey of a messed up girl.
The narration by Stephanie Willis is a little high-pitched, sometimes annoying, especially when Ravenna is yelling but you’ll get used to it and to be true, the characters needs such a voice. Besides that, all the other characters are given a slight variation in the voice with brilliant chuckles and giggles when required. Overall, the production and the narration were good.
Excellent short psychological thriller, highly recommended.
