The book was kinda boring throughout but the ending completely made up for any doubts I could've had in my mind about Joan Lowery Nixon. I've read 7 of her other books that were great!! But since only the end was super amazing I'm gonna have to give this only 3 stars. On the cover I thought the person behind Dina was a guy... Possibly Sikes... But it's JULIE!!! The seemingly innocent tortured soul nine year old girl was the killer! Ahhhhhhh!!!!
