Rosa seems like a charming and brilliant young girl, she makes it look like there is nothing wrong with her. But her brother knows better. She is so talented at deception and persuasion, he is certain she is a diagnosable psychopath. She hasn’t hurt any people yet, but he is sure it is only a matter of time. Ever since their parents moved them to New York City, Rosa has been playing increasingly complex and disturbing games. Can he protect Rosa from the world, but more importantly, can he protect the world against Rosa?

This book starts out as a fun YA with terrific characters and then gets really scary in a wonderful, creepy, horrifying way. Stunning conclusion. I really loved this book! There was quite a lot of build up, which made this a bit of a slower read towards the start and could have been condensed a little more. But at the same time it made the climax so much more intense!

If you like boxing and psychological disorders, this one is for you.
