I was in the mood for a particularly dark book and came across this one in the Kindle store. I must admit, the cover sold me, and the title seemed promising, so I downloaded it without even reading the description.
Flawed takes the dark genre, and times it by 1000. It is one of the most disturbing books I have read to date, and that is saying a lot. This is the story of a high school girl named Lacey, who is saving up for college, and providing for her family by working in the world’s oldest profession. Yup. She’s a child prostitute. Her mom is a druggie prostitute and her brother is a fuck-up of great proportions, so she can only rely on herself to survive and achieve her dreams.
If you are a lover of a more darker read, you may have come across a book or two about a person being abducted and trained as a sex slave. 99% of the time it is a female victim and a male kidnapper/master, so when you come across one of these books where the roles are reversed…it’s kinda like seeing a unicorn.
So today I tackled the abridged version, while sucking down some Chardonnay and killing Super Mutants and Ghouls on Fallout 4. I even got some housework done and washed about 5 loads of laundry as I listened on and even though it is the chore I hate the most, I was able to find my happy place in the world of a zombie apocalypse.
