Pierce grew up practically alone. Her mother was a drunk and a drug addict who abandoned her in a vampire compound. She was sexually and physically abused during her childhood days, making her create two alter ego.
Yeah, I have Mildred and Veda Pierce living in my head, so what? My name is Pierce and it makes sense to me, and that's all that matters.
She had been locked up for 10 years in the compound under a man who raped and drugged her. Now as she escaped, she has been on the run together with her ten-year-old brat who she whole heartedly wish to give a normal life. 
Mia is real, isn't she? I mean I have two 1945 film characters living in my head. Why not create an imaginary ten-year-old travelling companion too?
My Impression
After I finished the book, I realized that being loony can be very cool and funny. I was really blown away by how Pierce is. This book let me journey into a girl's psychotic mind. The funny thing is, it never felt like "She is cracked in the head." It felt like she is trying her best to preserve her sanity, it seems logical for me that her brain works like that. She is intelligent, she is different, she is not normal (in every way).

The book is dragging in the first few chapters, I honestly thought that I would actually learn how to cook tender steak and kidney pie and many other recipes from Pierce (cooking tips and tricks), but the author made it so that the reader would understand her thoroughly. To get to know her world, and mind you it's completely strange. She has two other Pierces living (yup... alive and kicking and cooking) inside her head. One represents her confidence and the other is her conscience. The only thing I didn't like in the story was Pierced attachment to classic movies in which I can't relate to.

At first I thought it will be full of sparkling handsome vampires, but no. This book is never what I expect it to be.
I liked the plot, it's really compelling. Once a new character is introduced you look forward to know them more and what role will they play in the story. I also like the way the author didn't give to much info about Pierce herself. I guess that's what's thrilling about this book. There's still so much to learn about her and she is such an interesting yet bizarre protagonist.

Rating: 5 stars 
Plot: Very interesting
Page Turner: In the latter part
Continued?: Yes.
Recommended: Yes.
Book Boyfriend: Surprisingly I've got Mildred in my head too.
