"Beautiful, brilliant, and inseparable, Josie and Jack Raeburn live a secluded, anarchic existence in their decaying western Pennsylvania home. The only adult in their lives is their rage-prone father, a physicist, whose erratic behavior finally drives them away. Without a moral compass to guide them, Jack leads Josie into a menacing world of wealth, eroticism, and betrayal. His sociopathic tendencies emerge, and soon Josie must decide which is stronger: the love and devotion she feels for her brother or her will to survive."--Back cover.

Wow, I don't know how I found this novel but I did. I was speechless when I read it. Could not put it down. 5 stars. Will remember this novel forever. Truly my favorite. Warning: not for everyone, topic is suggestive.

I don't why I keep reading books like these. It's not that there is anything wrong with them, at least literally. It's just that they leave a bad taste in my mouth like that WTF moment regarding Jack at the end. It's probably a combination of the incest and the fact that there is not one happy moment in these kids' lives which just makes me feel slightly disgusted and grumpy.

I found this book really twisted but it kept me intrigued and kept me up at night, excited to find out what was going to happen.
