From within the confines of the family shed, Sarah makes a decision that cannot be undone. Afterward, she awakens in a perilous world overrun with horrific monstrosities and grueling tribulations. Sarah must discover the reason why she was brought here and find a way home before she succumbs to her inner demons.

My Review:

I'm going to keep this short as it feels like anything I say might be a spoiler.  I'm not a huge fan of time loop type reads but every once in a while one will work for me and to be honest, at the beginning of this one, I wasn't sure.  This one doesn't quite fit into the normal groundhog day's type reads and for under 150 pages, tells its story very well.  

Sarah's story is a reflection of her life, wrought with monsters, and finding her way back to face the very serious decision she made prior to being caught in this infinite loop of inner demons.  There's a very good lesson to learn within these pages.  This almost acid trip like journey via Sarah's mind is somber and fascinating and gave me a satisfying ending.
