Om Josie and Jack

From the author of Save Yourself, this dark, suspenseful tale of the twisted relationship between a brother and sister is ';wicked fun' (Los Angeles Times). Beautiful, brilliant, and inseparable, Josie and Jack Raeburn live a secluded, anarchic existence in their decaying western Pennsylvania home. The only adult in their lives is their rage-prone father, a physicist, whose erratic behavior and frequent absences leave them isolated and dependent on each other for companionship. Without a moral compass to guide them, Jack leads Josie into a menacing world of wealth, eroticism, and betrayal. He encourages her to seduce a local boy for his own ulterior motivesbut reacts with fury when a bond grows between the two. As the two venture out into the wider world and Jack's sociopathic tendencies emerge, Josie must decide which is stronger: the love and devotion she feels for her brother, or her will to survive. From its opening page to its shocking climax, this contemporary Hansel and Gretel story is a ';sharp portrait of an asphyxiating love and a legacy of madness... Darkly gothic and supremely readable' (Publishers Weekly). ';Packs a powerful punch... Readers won't soon forget the chilling, unexpected ending.' Booklist ';Deliciously intense... One of the most haunting novels I've read in years.' Lauren Grodstein, author of A Friend of the Family
