But Gloria won’t take no for an answer and begins an insidious crusade to force the issue.
Amber Martin hates living with her crazy mother since her parents’ divorce, but she can hardly live with her dad, who’s too busy with “Miss Perfect” these days.

Robin has a new job working on a cancer research project. She’s also in a new relationship with Ben, which is great except for his spoiled kids hating her. Gloria, an acquaintance of Ben, asks Robin to get her son Alex into the cancer study. Unfortunately, the project is not for kids, so Robin has to say no. Meanwhile, Amber, Ben’s daughter, befriends Gloria and her son. Robin and Amber both start to realize Gloria is not as wonderful as she appears.
Suffer Little Children is told with alternating points of view. The characters are not all that likable, but are relatable. The story is captivating and kept me turning the pages.
Suffer Little Children is an intriguing novel. A dramatic and emotional read recommended for fans of psychological thrillers.
I received a digital copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
