The Family That Preys meets Flowers in the Attic
I must keep it locked away—the memory of my darkest secret….
When the rising tides of my life peak, I’m left struggling with the currents of the storm. The first dilemma is my dad’s gambling debt. Mama bounces back quickly from the ramifications it causes. She proves this by getting a new man. Her Rico Suave is just the tip of the iceberg—she moves us across state to live with him and his two sons.
My outgoing, older sister fits right in—she’s the total opposite of me. I am Madison Guillory, the shy, quiet type. Taught to make the best of even the worst situations, I contemplate giving my new family a chance.
Living with my future stepbrothers is interesting, to say the least. They’re like night and day. I have more in common with the laid-back brother, and we become instant friends. I’m adjusting to Taylor High, and the arrogant brother is even starting to grow on me. Maybe everything will work out after all.
My life finally seems to be falling into place until a dreadful night shatters my dreams. My world is flipped upside down because of the consequences I must now bear.
The memories of that night lurk in the shadows to torment me. If I think of what happened, I’ll succumb to my fear. His face has scorned me. No one will believe me if I confess, not even my own sister. I hold the key to my darkest secret, desperate to keep it locked away.

Trying to adjust to a new life, Madison goes through something that she can’t either hide and can’t even tell. A dark secret that will destroy her entire life. To find out what it is, read the book.
This author had me shaken to the core. This book is an act of bravado in itself. The book explores sensitive topics that people are even ashamed to talk about in real life openly and freely. The writing style is so clean without any grammatical errors or any problems that I loved reading it. The description is on point, with no long paragraphs and no short liners. This book is a turmoil of emotions and is a smooth ride through the character’s pain and trauma. The characters development is very nicely done and the book is written from Madison’s POV, I expected some main characters’ POV too but that’s the one thing that lacked here. I loved the book. Overall, it’s a neat book with clean and easy writing that explores hard topics making it a worthy read.
So that’s it for today. I am so happy to try and be back. Do join me on my other social media platforms:
