I'm just now reading it.  Dark indeed.  LOL  I don't know if I love the main character or hate her!

Oh, I hated her, but I also felt sorry for her. It's sort of like the feeling I get when I run into someone I went to school with and they used to be popular and treated people like crap, then I find out their life went to crap.  In one sense, I just think Karma caught up. In another sense, I feel completely sympathetic. Still, the book's hard to put down!

I just started this book! I have had it for awhile but just got around to reading it (like the other 100+ books on my shelf!!) I just realized that it is based on a true story (the author's experience)! I googled Jessica Cutler and found this wikipedia article about her en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jessica_Cutler .

If you go to the end of the Wiki page, you'll find the Wonkette blog (aka Blogette) with all her Washingtonienne entries right there!  Very interesting...
