The reason I gave this a 3, is because of spelling, punctuation and incorrect word usage. Routing for rooting, wrong use of there, other errors. Should not depend on spell check. Have a proofreader.
This heartbreaking tale of Deandra Baxter's life deals with a negligent mother addicted to drugs who constantly subjects her daughter to physical harm and pedophiles. But rather than take the abuse, Deandra will do anything to survive and that includes murder.
Overall, Ms. Baker did a great job holding my interest. I was genuinely concerned to find out what was going to become of Deandra. Although at times, it felt very much like I was reading more of a memoir, mixed with fictional fantasies of what the victim would have liked to do to her attackers.
I especially was not sold on the final act her mother did in an attempt to redeem herself. Diane was just too damn selfish to ever do such a thing for Deandra. Not to mention her love for Steven was too strong for anyone to come between, her own husband Eric couldn't even sever their bond. Diane would have again, chosen Steven over Deandra and because of that, I was a bit turned off by the ending.
Even though the story ended in a direction I did not agree with, I was still happy that Deandra finally got the happily ever after she very much deserved.
