I've wondered a time or two if I'm autistic since it is a spectrum and I could just be a bit more higher functioning than others are. Ginny is very obsessive about her baby doll which people just write off as an actual doll. Okay I'm going to get a little spoilery but I found it super strange that the cops never found this girl's little sister when they rescued Ginny from a seriously shitty home life with a mother that's an addict who is also bringing home questionable men.
So I did wonder for a portion of the book until it got revealed that there was an actual little sister but since I'm me and my brain goes to strange places I started to wonder if this was her child even though that would have been a bit of a stretch. Ginny's obsessing over her little sister caused her to do some crazy things like stealing cellphones and arranging for her birth mother to kidnap her. Even though it was a bit ridiculous I found myself enjoying it very much. I think this is a great debut novel and I'm sure I'll enjoy other things that he writes in the future. I actually think this might be one of those rare things called stand alones. I don't often come across them since it seems like everyone is doing series and don't get me started on the definition of trilogy getting fucked with. Once there are more than three books the word trilogy no longer applies.
