Jack & Josie is worse than Jack & Jill

Remember Wuthering Heights by one of the Bronte sisters in which Catherine falls in love with her foster brother? Destructive as it was, the relationship was quite intense and was repeated once again through their children. Yeah, quite a book....If it was a bit creepy or eerie then you would definitely think Josie and Jack by Kelly Braffet is disturbing.
Josie and Jack are brother and sister living in a huge home filled with lost memories of their childhood and of their mother, long dead.  Their father is the only person they have who barely comes home from work to even greet them. As the chapters progress things start to get oddly worse in their home, rocking Josie and Jack’s relationship into a spiral of intense negative emotions.
What is interesting about this book is that the disturbing part of the family portrayed here is subtle, which makes it a little more terrifying than your regular dysfunctional family. Anyone reading this book would think that everyone is crazy. But I think it’s more of an aftermath of dealing with the death of a loved one. I don't know whether to like this book or not since there was so much that wasn't revealed. This book is a question mark in itself. IF you are into that type of thing go ahead. But I'd rather walk away 


  1. This book sounds interesting. If it's all that psychological social-themed story, I may actually like it. I'm gonna get a copy of it and read it someday. =]

    Uhm, Miss Bobo, I can't get into Rockinglicious anymore for some reason. Blogger has changed their rule in adult contents; they now automatically block those people under 18. So. . . maybe you can change the settings of Rockinglicious so I can read the recent posts that come up on my feed. Pleease. Come on, you rock.


  2. Thanks for the comment and the heads up. I will do that. :D
