What Good Girls Do by Jonathan Butcher
'Like all the best extreme horror, What Good Girls Do leaves you with the urge to go and bleach your soul after reading...'
Alex Davis, creator of Film Gutter
She lives with no name.
She has never left her room.
All she has ever known is pain and abuse.
Today, she will breathe fresh air for the first time, feel sunshine against her skin and even witness human kindness.
But she has a point to make – a bleak, violent point – and when she meets her neighbour, Serenity, she finds the perfect pupil.
Forced to endure a lesson distilled from a nightmarish existence, Serenity must face unflinching evil, witness the unspeakable, and question her most deeply-held views, until at last she has no choice but to fight for her family’s survival.
I finished this at lightening speed. It wasn’t just the usual torture porn type stuff. It was way too realistic and the writer developed the characters so well that you felt sympathy for the ones you should and hate for the other ones. Couldn’t shake off the whole daddy thing for awhile.
