The story begins with Annaliese being interrogated on a hospital after she showed up unexpectedly after being nearly a year missing. Doctor Grimace and Gloom thinks something is off with her. " Out of those seven hundred and fifty-two brains, only four have behaved in ways that I could not understand...I determined after extensive testing that those brains are aberrations to the point of no longer being technically human." "Yours is the fourth brain. And makes you my first living monster."
And something is off, she isn't Annaliese but someone else living on her body. She doesn't remembers anything. She only knows that she needs to find herself. Anna Martin who is now living Annaliese Rose Gordon's life. Who may not be even human. "Annaliese was gone. Anna was dust. (They) might never be found." Her choices may be the only thing that will save her.
Annaliese doesn't seem like an evil person but something evil is surrounding her. An strange boy named Eric. An razor blade. Missing girls. A mysterious man known as the Physician. A birthday never to come. In all her past and her unknown future. In the present, while she struggles with her new life and body, her odd next door neighbor, Dex captures her attention. Dex has been on a lot of crazy and dark places since his best friend killed him self and his mom locked herself away from civilization including him. They both "have come a long distance" but together they would " finally find a safe place to rest."
Another Little Piece is a masterpiece. Dark and eerie. Mythical. Original. Mind-bending. Creepy. A whole new level of scary.
I love how Annaliese's poems reflect how she is so different yet so alike to Anna.
" I appear weak,
but I'm not always
what I seem to be.
This is not even close
to all there is
I dare you to
I give the author my step of applause for giving the readers, something different on the paranormal genre. Something deliciously dark. It's a bit fragmented and in some part confusing but it totally worked for me. I "ate my heart out" reading this book. ? LOVE IT. A favorite. 5 Stars.
