Slice of Cherry

“The upside of having a serial killer for a father is that no matter what you do, it’s never as bad as what he’s done.”

Guthrie Cordelle is on death row, but not all of him was locked up – his desire to kill lives free in the hearts of his two teenage daughters, Kit and Fancy.  Lucky for the girls, their hometown of Portero has magical secrets just as dark and dangerous as their own lethal urges, and they can use those secrets to help hide the inventive ways they punish the wicked.

 

My Review: I’ve never read a book quite like Slice of Cherry – it’s so uniquely disturbing and at times so darkly, darkly funny that I was unwillingly fascinated.  The girls’ desire to maim, kill, and punish makes parts of the book graphic and not for the faint of heart.  However, it also explores the everyday problems that face two sisters who are extremely close, but getting older and dealing with their own needs and secrets and jealousies.

This is one you just have to read for yourself to see how the the magic, the horror and the just plain weirdness mix together to create one spellbinding read. Slice of Cherry by Dia Reeves is now available at the library.
