This is a really good story, but I'm not really sure that I would define it as horror. It is a pretty horrific event. A very sad story. And scary. But not what I consider horror.
The story is well written and emotionally charged. I really felt for Candy, her mother Larissa and Beverly. What all three of them went through is tragic, but if I say anymore, it will give away what you would be experiencing by reading this book. I recommend this story, but not as a horror.
