Lucy is eight years old. She is an incredibly sweet and beautiful little girl with a precocious streak. Her worried parents send her to a psychiatrist when she begins to show signs of odd behavior. The psychiatrist searches for the reasons behind young Lucy's seductive and murderous intentions which seem incredibly practiced for an eight year old.
I really enjoyed this book. It delved into the effect that a parent's behavior has on a child's development. I give this book an A+!
A+! - (96-100%)
