How far does the apple really fall from the tree?

BookSparks’ Fall Reading Challenge 2017 kicks off with Ali Land’s, GOOD ME, BAD ME (FLATIRONBooks). Hold on to your knickers, peeps, because this one is going to freak you out – I promise! It totally took me by surprise for its totally out-of-the-box, originality and Ali Land’s compelling narrative. Trust me, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

Fifteen year-old, Milly’s mother is a serial killer. The only way for her to get mummy-dearest to stop killing, is to turn her into the police. Milly is given a new identity, a home with a wealthy family, including new clothes and an allowance, as well as entrance to an exclusive private school.

But Milly has secrets and as the trial gets closer, she starts wondering if she’s destined to become a serial killer like her mother. Milly is surrounded by psychological experts to help her prep for the trial, and tries to attend school like any normal student, but she has to deal with the family’s daughter from hell. Tension continues to build, relationships cross boundaries, while Milly has to decide: Is she good? Or is she bad?

GOOD ME, BAD ME is a fast read. It kept me flipping the pages and delivered a surprising ending. I have to point out one observation. Ali included the phrase, “Tick Tock. Tick,” which is becoming a cliche in many new popular psycholigical thrillers. She didn’t need to. Her own prose are much more compelling.



After graduating from university with a degree in Mental Health, Ali Land spent a decade working as a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Nurse in both hospitals and schools in the UK and Australia. Ali is now a full-time writer and lives in West London.

  1. I would like to say exactly how I feel about so many things and stand up for myself instead of being a listening person only.


  2. My loose skin all over. I’ve worked hard to lose the weight and can’t get the skin to snap back. Depressing.


  3. I don’t want to change anything about me. Not saying I am perfect, but I am who I am and I’m good with that. I don’t want to do this life over being something other than who I am.


  4. I am getting into my 60’s and things my kids are doing now just don;t seem right to me they are doing things like they aren;t thinking .I wish i could come out and say what the heck are you thinking and tell them instead of them just yelling at me.


  5. I like myself other than my weight. So if I could choose one thing, I’d have a faster metabolism! Lol. But I’m working on my weight issues and joined a gym recently.


  6. I hold on to emotions that I should really let go of. Thanks for the giveaway. Sounds like a really interesting read.


  7. I read Caitlin’s comment above and it sounded like what I was going to write! I worry about everything and try to please everyone…both things I’m constantly working on to change.
