I'm getting some bad vibes off of this one. One dad has already beaten his son, and another girl's father has begun to look at her
lasciviously. And I'm only on page 120. As most of my friends know, I can't stand books in which kids are abused for the sake of "entertaining" a reader--I think that is a very unfortunate trend in suspense/horror writing, and I'm just not going to see this one to conclusion.
