On a cool autumn night, Annaliese Rose Gordon stumbled out of the woods and into a high school party. She was screaming. Drenched in blood. Then she vanished.

A year later, Annaliese is found wandering down a road hundreds of miles away. She doesn't know who she is. She doesn't know how she got there. She only knows one thing: She is not the real Annaliese Rose Gordon.

Now Annaliese is haunted by strange visions and broken memories. Memories of a reckless, desperate wish . . . a bloody razor . . . and the faces of other girls who disappeared. Piece by piece, Annaliese's fractured memories come together to reveal a violent, endless cycle that she will never escape—unless she can unlock the twisted secrets of her past.

I just couldn’t bring myself to finish this book. I tried and just to the point where I was just uninterested in it to go on. I sadly had to put this one down.

This one starts off pretty interesting where a girl is wandering through the woods to this house in a trash bag. But then it starts to get strange. Everyone believes she is this girl that was presumed dead a year prior. She looks like her and talks like her but doesn’t have her memories. Then she is taken to this hospital to talk to a shrink and then her parents take her home. She refers to them as “the Mom” and “the Dad”. Then it goes back and forth through the present and past memories. She even once had a craving for some boys blood or something. So this really wasn’t what I expected. 

This is another book that I need to put up on a shelf and try to come back to another time, hopefully. But for now, I just can’t bring myself to pick it up again to finish.

Kate Karyus Quinn is an avid reader and menthol chapstick addict. She has lived in California and Tennessee, but recently made the move back to her hometown of Buffalo, New York, with her husband and two children in tow. She promised them wonderful people, amazing food, and weather that would... build character. Another Little Piece is her first novel.
