This was a gripping story. It is not my usual reading but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I had to get to the end to find out how (and if) Dorianna survives. There were a few twists as well as a lot of teenage angst to keep the story moving. I felt for Dorianna as she tried to belong and took a path that proved to be rather destructive. Her struggle between good and evil showed how strong her inner being was as well as her acceptance of the rest of her life. I loved the ending. Thank you for a great read.
