This was an unsettling book to read and one that will stay with me for a long time. The author manages to capture a feeling of unease and dread that acts as the backdrop of this entire story. Even though it hints at the beginning where the story will go, it still left me on the edge of my seat needing to know what happened next.

I tend to really enjoy books with unreliable narrators because it always leaves you questioning what you can and cannot believe. The author captures this so well in Lauren's character. The other characters believe she's crazy, the doctors keep trying to prescribe her medication. In a lot of ways, you want to be the one to believe her. You're in her thoughts and seeing everything through her eyes. But there's always that seed of doubt. What if she is just hallucinating? But also what if she isn't? What if there really is a woman in black trying to steal her twins? The whole novel left me flipping back and forth between the two and as a thriller, it worked really well.
