When they say that Lauren Tranter is exhausted, she really is. I think anyone with twins has every right to be exhausted. But is she seeing things? Is she imaging things? She is convinced that she saw a woman attempting to take her boys claiming that "its only fair" and wants to them with her own twins. However, no one seems to believe her.
However, things took a turn and the twins disappear. Twin boys are found shortly after, however, Lauren doesn't believe they are her boys. (this really reminded me a little bit of Changling with Angelina Jolie). While I've read my share of thrillers and sometimes get a little tired of the plot, that was not the case with this book. I actually missed my stop on the train because I was so caught up in the book.
This is based off of some creepy dark fairly tales (and to me sort of reads like it) and I really enjoyed it. The characters were well written and I felt for Lauren through out the book.
I've heard that this has already been optioned as a movie and I can't wait to see how it comes from the pages to the screen.
