There is so much to say about this book, but I need some time to digest it fully. The story is told through two perspectives of the same person, a ”bad seed” of a child and that child as an adult with a child of her own. It is unlike any story I’ve ever read, and helps the reader imagine what happens to children who kill once they’ve done their time and grown up and get their second chance at life. I kept waiting for some focus on mental health, but it never went there. I really enjoyed watching the story unfold. It seemed very straightforward in the beginning, but as it went on between perspectives, it becomes very clear that it’s much more than a case of just being a bad seed.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for me. If you like disturbing stories without sexual violence or gore, I highly recommend this one.
You can find The First Day of Spring, by Nancy Tucker on Amazon or at your local library.
