Synopsis of Good Me Bad Me
Good Me Bad Me is dark, compelling, voice-driven psychological suspense by debut author Ali Land
Milly’s mother is a serial killer. Though Milly loves her mother, the only way to make her stop is to turn her in to the police.
Milly is given a fresh start: a new identity, a home with an affluent foster family, and a spot at an exclusive private school. But Milly has secrets, and life at her new home becomes complicated.
As her mother’s trial looms, with Milly as the star witness, Milly starts to wonder how much of her is nature, how much of her is nurture, and whether she is doomed to turn out like her mother after all.
When tensions rise and Milly feels trapped by her shiny new life, she has to decide: Will she be good? Or is she bad? She is, after all, her mother’s daughter.

Good Me Bad Me by Ali Land Review
Good, the novel, we don’t know if the protagonist is good or bad until the end.
The most interesting and salient thing is the development of the protagonist. She is the daughter of a serial killer whose victims were small children and she was forced to help. Her doubts are centered on the question of whether she is as bad as her mother, if she inherited her wickedness, or, on the contrary, if she’s good.
When her mother is arrested she is living with her therapist’s family, waiting for the trial. It’s the atmosphere and the acceptance of said family which will mark the evolution of the character. And, therefore, the conclusion to which she arrives: good or bad.
I won’t say anything else to not spoil the story.
