I normally enjoy Maynard's books, but just couldn't get into this one. Rachel was unlikeable and unbelievable, seemed sex was on her mind most of the time. The story just went on and on... with the killings an excuse to explain rape and murder. The sisters keep seeing and hearing about sex, people in various states of undress.The main character has too much power for a 13 yr. old, really, she ruins her father's professional and personal life. She also has visions, which just happen to go away as she gets older, I guess one more superhuman power that comes with puberty. I won't ruin the ending, if you make it that far, but the finale really clinched my dislike for the character. If you have never read Maynard, start with any other book.
