Review; Pierced (Pierced #1) by J.C. Mells

Imagine the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo meets Betty Crocker. 

That's Pierce in a nutshell.

Pierce has been on the run for two years from the man who held her captive in a vampire compound for almost a decade. Life on the run would be a lot simpler if she didn't suffer from several social disorders and 'quirks', have a ten-year-old brat in tow, as well as have two characters from a 1945 classic film living in her head and guiding her at every turn

My thoughts
Straight away with this book we see that the main character Pierce is different from most girls not just because of her numerous piercings or her short spiked hair but because she sees the world differently to most. Not only that but she as split personalities living inside her mind who we often get to see her interacting with, I loved the snide remarks and the comedic conversations she as with her two inner personality’s Veda and Mildred.
Pierce is on the run from a man who has held her captive in a vampire compound for most of her life she managed to escape bringing along with her a ten year old girl named Mia, they are constantly on the run to avoid capture.
Pierce although adamant that that she and Mia can manage on there on does pick up a few friends albeit grudgingly on both sides along the way.
The story touches on many things, Asperger’s, drug use, sex/rape, abuse so for that reason I don’t think it would be suitable for a younger audience and would class it as New Adult, I am only pointing this out as a lot of my reviews are YA

I am defiantly looking forward to reading more in the series
