The Push by Ashley Audrian is a story about and mother and her daughter. It is a story about nature vs nurture. It is a story about one little bad seed! In this story we are following a mother, who try as she might cannot connect with her daughter, who might be a monster, or is it all in the mother's head?

This book surprised me!
At first I could not get into the writing style or the constant back and forth in time jumps, but I told myself to just push on and try a few more chapters. I'm very glad I did. My rating would be a 4.5 or A-/B+ but I went ahead and put 5 stars because this book surprised me with how much I like it. I mean, I even finished it in one day! So let's get into the positives and negatives...
Let's get into the positives:
-I find that it gives us a look into some of the thoughts of motherhood. (Which I personally have not experienced myself, but as a woman, and someone who does want children in the future, I was interesting to read.)
-It kept me on my feet as I was reading wondering if this woman's child was really evil or not.
-It really evoked a lot of emotion and feeling throughout the story.
-The characters compelled me.
- It took a while to get use to the writing style, and the back and forth of the time jumps.
Overall though I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it. Though I would say it deals with some tough topics, it is very interesting and entertaining.
