I would like to have given this 4.5 stars if I could. I can’t give it 5 stars as it took me quite a while to get into it. I didn’t initially like ex-army – now Maths teacher Jenni much though I warmed to her at the end. Her lack of empathy didn’t really add much to the story. I’m not sure why she was portrayed that way. Destiny on the other hand came over as sometimes a victim and sometimes a psychopath. This story is not a straightforward case of child grooming. Destiny is far more complex as she is sometimes the groomer. The more you find out about her the more you understand her behaviour. Up to a point that is. A very thought-provoking read with an unexpected ending. And I do love George.
Many thanks to the Pigeonhole, my fellow Pigeons and the author for making it such an enjoyable read.
