Love can be a dangerous thing….
Hanna simply wants to be loved. With a head plagued by hallucinations, a medicine cabinet full of pills, and a closet stuffed with frilly, violet dresses, Hanna’s tired of being the outcast, the weird girl, the freak. So she runs away to Portero, Texas in search of a new home.
But Portero is a stranger town than Hanna expects. As she tries to make a place for herself, she discovers dark secrets that would terrify any normal soul. Good thing for Hanna, she’s far from normal. As this crazy girl meets an even crazier town, only two things are certain: Anything can happen and no one is safe.
The truck driver let me off on Lamartine, on the odd side of the street. I felt odd, too, standing in the town where my mother had lived. For the first seven years of my life, we hadn't even lived in the same continent, and now she waited only a few houses away.
Why didn't you have the truck driver let you off right in front of her house? Poppa's voice echoed peevishly in my head, as if he were the one having to navigate alone in the dark.
"I have to creep up on her," I whispered, unwilling to disturb the extreme quiet of the midnight, "otherwise my heart might explode."
What's her house number?
Have a great weekend everyone!! :)
