Poe's Mother by Michael Meeske Review

Book's Description provided by Amazon:
1975. A 15-year-old young woman. A small, dusty town. A family that worships the great American author Edgar Allan Poe, and carries his surname.
Poe's Mother is a startling new novel of dark family secrets, the lure of the supernatural, the claustrophobic isolation of a dying town and a cautionary tale of the power of words.
This is the story of Sissy Baxter and her strange relationship with Edgar and Madeline Poe - two people who claim they love her. What Sissy discovers will change her life forever, and love will never be the same.
(This book is for mature readers.)

My review and my thoughts::
 This book was completely horrific and amazing at the same time! It blew my mind half the time and the other half of the time I couldnt believe what I was reading. Just imagine yourself at 15 years old and having a hard time in life when (even through you are 15 you are not a child because you have the maturity of an adult) she discovers a dark and horrible past. This book will send chills down your back and it will make you put the book down but will also make you want to pick it back up just so you know what happens next. This book makes you think rather or not its a reality or real life. What happens in some parts of this book (no I will not giveaway any part of the book because its a must read!) will make your re-read what you just read so you make sure that that's actually what happened.

This book deserves 5 out 5 stars maybe 6 for just the creepiness lol
