Perfect Little Children introduces
readers to Beth, who is a loving mom of two teenagers and
wife to a loving husband. As she is doing her motherly duty
of taking her son to his football game, she passes by the
home of her former best friend, Flora. She finds Flora there
calling out to two young children. These children should be
teenagers now. Why do these kids look exactly the same way
that they did 12 years ago and with the same names? Beth is
set to find out, but will she get more than what she bargained
Overall, the plot is just strange.
No one normally would set forth on trying to discover what
is going on with former friends from 12 years ago, especially
after the way that Beth and Flora’s friendship dissolved.
They would not just drive by their former house to check it
out. Beth finds herself in mystery that no one in their right
mind would have attempted to solve. Most would have just let
it go. The reasoning behind all of the trickery is as strange
as the mystery itself. With that being said, this reader was
resolved in reading faster because I wanted to know what exactly
happened and why. This reader closed Perfect Little Children
with a shake of a head.
Perfect Little Children is
not for everyone, but if you are looking for something to
make your mind think of something else, then pick up this
book. This reader can honestly say that I did not think about
the outside world while reading.
