The Killing Jar Free download ê 109 O care for her little brother Clever brave and frighteningly independent Kerrie Ann has an unbreakable will to survive She befriends her eccentric elderly neighbor who teaches her about butterflies the and life outside of her tough neighborhood But even as Kerrie Ann dreams o This is the most outstanding book I ve read in a long time I give it 6 out of 5 A stunning piece of work so as it s a first novel Obviously a gifted and intelligent writerThe story is terrible in the truest sense Original in Nottingham accent from page 1 to the end the story is steeped in authenticity horrific as it is The events steer inevitably towards a crescendo of fearHaving said that I recommend it as mandatory reading for this day and age that we live in The poverty driven drug culture is everywhereThis story was a gift for me in many ways as I ve been around the edges of such cultures in Australia and know the destruction I ve heard many of the same stories If anyone thinks that this stuff is over the top and doesn t happen think again It s out thereThis novel helped me to better understand the impact of growing up in a dysfunctional culture and the inability the unwillingness even to reach for something better the difficulty in extracting oneself from the only life known from the only love known and how that life that ignorance and that love create a set of prison bars Within this environment the person descends into a hell of the culture s creationThe writing style is highly engaging and holds integrity throughoutWhilst the ending of the story was unexpected I also read into the ending that there were various optional endings that happen every day in this cultural settingand we know what they are This book says why they are
