They were four perfect little children. Alex had taught them well. They helped with the house, set the table for meals, and went straight upstairs after dinner to do their homework. They did as they were told—that is, as Alex told.
Sharon didn’t miss the glances that passed between her husband and the foster children. From the day they arrived, they had looked up to Alex, worshiped him. Why, it even seemed they were beginning to act like Alex—right down to the icy sarcasm, the terrifying smile, the evil gleam in their eyes when they looked at her.
Oh yes, they’d do anything to please Alex. Anything at all…

Alex and Sharon are a married couple who decided to go to the foster protection so they can adopt a child. It was Alex’s idea but Sharon trusted him and his choices. He was so happy, excited she just couldn’t say No to him. She loved that he was so happy. But looks like Alex was not that good. It wasn’t about having a normal child who ‘ll have friends and go to school and be the good boy that every parent would like to have.
Somehow Alex could convince his wife to adopt Richard. a girl who was raped and worked as a prostitute and another one and another one!!
I was so angry while reading the whole book and I guess the only reason because I loved Sharon’s character. She was trying to be nice the whole time. She felt bad for everything even if it wasn’t her fault. The way that everyone treated her with made me furious.
I think I was so connected to her character that I was seeing everything through her eyes.
The book was good but I just don’t like to read the books that make me feel angry or sad 😦 .
