I've read it 3 times already in the past week!!!

This sounds like a book I'd get into. Next time I'm out trawling through second hand book stores I'll keep my eye open for it.

I love a bleak read.

Currently reading The Night Stalker by Philip Carlo.

It's pretty full on.

Queued. There have been some surprisingly good YA books recently.

Fahrenheight 451 is a good book, I'll admit I only read it because I had to for my Cegep course, but it was good.
