''A spellbinding tale that masterfully showcases people's depravity, but also their deep and abiding humanity. Francine Pascal's view into the human heart, in all its myriad shades, is breathtaking.'' --Mia Sheridan, New York Times bestselling author
''In Little Crew of Butchers, Francine Pascal tells an unsettling story of four desperate days in the life of a homeless man. As cruelty, love, and violence converge in the final explosive chapters, the truth is all too clear: only we can stop the cycles of inhumanity that plague society.'' --Emily Carpenter, author of Until the Day I Die
''A tour de force that explores the savagery of children and the dark side of innocence.'' --Mindy McGinnis, author of The Female of the Species
''Francine Pascal is without comparison.'' --Lucinda Berry, bestselling author of When She Returned
''Pascal knows how to craft short, snappy chapters that leave the reader wanting more, and little Lucy, described as 'weird' by most of those who know her, makes an appealingly different heroine.'' --Kirkus Reviews
''[A] nail-biting thriller ... Little Crew of Butchers stands in shocking contrast to Francine Pascal's previous work as creator of Sweet Valley High ... Pascal avoids heavy-handed parables by maintaining a suspenseful pace that culminates in a heartbreaking redemption.'' --Shelf Awareness --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

Spoiler free review:
I struggled in the beginning with this book. I really disliked every character and every decision they made. It was around a third of the way into the book when I realized I was SUPPOSED to not like every character. I was supposed to be appalled at how they handled these situations. Once that realization struck, I tore through the rest of the book in a few hours.
While it was a quick read, it wasn’t an easy one. The mental anguish Luke goes through while being stuck was tough to read. The kids were infuriating, but well written because they all felt real.
The finale was shocking but well done and felt like something that could really happen.
Overall, this was a good read if you’re looking for something that takes you for an emotional ride.
