Horror for people who don't like horror. When I read the premise, I expected it to be a straight up horror novel similar to the movie The Ring (in fact it's the same spirit as in the movie), but what I got was a story that yes, had some anger and vengeance, but also love and redemption. I enjoyed this book much better than I thought I would and I hope you will too.

This is a beautiful story of a girl who decides to put her heart in a bottle thus protecting it from the world.

Each page contains several illustrations bordered by quotations from respected leaders and peace makers throughout history. These illustrations and quotations create layers of meaning, thereby elevating the story to a completely new level. Go out and pick it up, I guarantee it will change your life.
