Josie and Jack by Kelly Braffet

An isolated but brilliant girl grows up under the thrall of her charismatic older brother, and when he leaves home the choice to follow him may be her undoing.

The dark, psychological thriller may possibly be my very favorite genre to read, and Josie and Jack was a gem-perfect example. These days I just don’t have a lot of time to read, between homeschooling my two kids, seeing private practice clients as a lactation consultant, and devouring Breaking Bad. But this book made me stop everything and read and it was all over way too soon. The Amazon description invoked the great Patricia Highsmith and the comparison was utterly and awesomely appropriate.
