About this deal

This is a perspective which is fast becoming a trend going by my recent reads: victim lit or, perhaps more appropriately, survivor lit. This certainly didn’t seem a very likely scenario, as there’s not many female serial killers in real life for a start, and for worker in a women’s refuge to get away with killing so many children of the women staying there implies that the police must be pretty inept.

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. Great characters, dark and disturbing plot with great twists and turns to keep the reader interested.The story opens with a brilliant premise: Teenaged Annie turns her serial killer mother in to the police.

Ali Land graduated from university with a degree in Mental Health and spent a decade working as a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Nurse. The story’s told from the POV of Milly, the abused fifteen year old daughter of a serial killer mom. A teenage girl with a very troubled past reports her mum to the police for the terrible things she has done, and is fostered by her psychologist. For the Twisted Sister Norma it was a very different experience as she really got into the minds of the characters as the narrator of the audiobook was absolutely brilliant and really showed how creepy and disturbing these characters really were. Good me Bad me is the debut novel by Ali Land, but I'm sure we're going to be reading much more from her in the future.She so desperately wants to fit into this new family but their daughter has no intention of making life easy for her, especially at school. It takes a lot to well and truly wreak havoc with my psyche, to really give me a case of the shivers, and leave me feeling unsettled. Good Me, Bad Me is one those strange books where the beginning and end are kinda meh, but the middle is fantastic. Milly’s mother, a female serial killer, whose voice is always running in Milly’s mind, planting seeds of doubt, is absolutely chilling.

After the last few years of hearing that every new psychological thriller is the "new gone girl", I became fed up of having my hopes constantly dashed.The questioning she undergoes in court is astonishingly brought home how a child brought up with overbearing, mind turning parents can have an effect on your psychological mind when she is listening out behind a screen for just the breathing sounds of her mother. The book begins with this very appropriate quote by Cason McCullers: “But the hearts of small children are delicate organs.
