His head bobs up and down and he wiggles on his knees. I keep the gun steady. Uncle Simon stands up and takes a step back, ruffling my hair.

I nod and count.

I pull the trigger, the Italian's head explodes. Red and brown bits of brain on red and brown dirt. I flick the safety on the gun, like Uncle Simon showed me, and I step back.

shoutout2mybtches: Really nice novel, I don’t need to go into detail about where sometimes you forgot to add reece into parts because so many people have been rude even after you explained it. I think you did a great job!

yarimar dejesus: I like the story but not her character. She still blinded by her "parents" and I don't like that

neihneih676: This book was honestly sooo good. The plot was a little bit cliche but also had its very original tweak to it. I think that the author’s writing style was great but there were a few grammatically incorrect paragraphs or sentences, something he/she could easily change. Loved this book!!
