The Poison Apples by Lily Archer

This came to me via CJ, who had enjoyed the book. What better recommendation can you have than that? After all, she recommended each little bird that sings which is one of my all-time favorites.

Anyway, this was a pretty good read. The premise is three young girls, each telling their own story -- thus chapters are titled by their names, e.g. "Molly", "Alice" and "Reena". And each of their story teeters on a heartbreak, but not enough to turn the book sappy (which actually, would have been welcomed by me, but doesn't take away from the story). The heartbreak is how each girl ended up in a divorced home...

...with an "evil" step-mother taking over the role of dad's significant other. Let me tell you, these are situations where you will be ENRAGED at the dumb-ass dads, who allow these stumps declared as "women" into their lives; to treat their children the way these skanks treat their woman.

Let me tell you, Lily Archer had a way of revving up the fire in me with these situations.

The title of the book is the name of their secret society to avenge the cruelty of the evil stepmothers.

All seems that vengeance is on its way but alas, nothing comes out of it. I really want to avenge these girls -- and their mothers -- and ruin these sorry-ass dads. Me thinks this isn't the end of The Poison Apples.
