3.0 out of 5 stars Somewhere in Between, October 26, 2011

This review is from: Too Young to Kill (Mass Market Paperback)
I'm a fan of Phelps. I really enjoyed Cruel Death however, I do understand what some of my fellow reviewers mean when they say the book was boring.

Adrianne Reynolds was born to a teenage mother who handed Adrianne over at birth to her own mother and stepfather, Tony Reynolds, who raise Adrianne as their own. When her Grandparents seperate Adrianne went back to her mother. There were allegations of molestation by her new stepfather but charges were later dropped. Tony Reynolds loses contact with Adrianne for several years and only after Adrianne's mother asks Tony to take her troubled daughter, that the two are reunited. Tony's new wife finds Adrianne a handful and there are a series of fights between the two women. Adrianne goes back to her Mother's for a short time and eventually goes back to Tony and his wife. What Adrianne wanted was love and acceptence but her behavior made it hard to break through. Though the Reynolds tried it didn't seem to work out for the three. Things weren't good at home and the misfit friends Adrianne made at school were no better. Adrianne for some reason, hangs onto one girl in particular, Sarah Kolb: a sloppy, misguided, angry teen who in the beginning, was attracted to Adrianne. Sarah's admiration soon turns to hate and along with her creepy friend Cory Gregory decides to kill Adrianne. They murder Adrianne in Sarah's car and drive to a remote place to burn her body. After the body doesn't burn they decide to chop her up - but they can't do it, so they enlist the help of another nut, Nate Gaudet. Phelps goes on to explain the world of Juggalos which Sarah and Cory belong to. It could have been described once and never brought up again, but for some reason Phelps refers to the band of misfits and their Juggalo way of life at every turn. We never find out what made Sarah, Cory and Nate that disturbed. More background info on the three would have been good because there had to be something in their backgrounds that turned these three into the nutcases that they are. I was bored with the Juggalo repetition and I do feel more about the killers was needed. I didn't love the book but I didn't hate it either. So because there are no half stars, I have to give it 3
