Will she get free? What Barbara is in for is a week worth of torture, humiliation, and rape before the kids form an extremely elaborate plan to frame a Mexican field worker, and kill Barbra by stabbing her with a red hot poker. Kill the Cutie : Barbara, who dies at the end of the book. I think the book broke me.

Will the children be punished? Due to copyright laws, it was never actually published, but is available online at his websiteand you can find a review here. Books that keep me up at night and I pause, wondering if I dare continue. As the story continues, we see the innocence and human emotion being stripped away from these children.

Had Schneebeli's project gone to press, it might have brought the original book out of obscurity. They were all old enough to know better. It was very hard to see Barbara's optimisim begin to degrade when she realizes that it has become more than a game and she's not going to get out of the situation alive. But if they don't let her go, they will ultimately get into even more trouble once the adults return. I just wanted to cry for Barbara. And worse.
