Live to Tell, Lisa Gardner
A word to the wise-this book is not for the faint of heart. The description of he troubled children and the things they are capable of was chilling. As horrific as the crimes themselves were, reading about a little boy who is so cunning and violent that he lies in wait for his mother in order to follow through on his threat to kill her was worse. But the setting of the locked children's psych ward was fascinating, and the mystery itself had enough twists and turns that there is more than the slightly creepy draw of the psychotic children. This popcorn comes with a side of crazy, but it is an enjoyable ride nonetheless.
