The Good Demon by Jimmy Cajoleas
Creepy, Dark but yet so meaningful and really teaches you about life. It’s a coming of age story for a girl who’s lost and feels alone. It’s a story for someone who’s stuck in a bad relationship and doesn’t know how to get out. It’s a story for someone who’s been told one thing and one thing only from their parents but yet wonder what’s out there’? This has so many different sides too and every side was done so well!!
The Good Demon is so much more than a girl who had a demon taken from her and wants her back. It’s magical and dark and screwed up but good and light and heartfelt all at the same time!
Clara learns to be happy with herself or to try to be. She learns that just because you see something one way doesn’t mean that’s the only way and so does Roy!
The topics handled in this are amazing and done very well. Christianity and it’s religious leaders who do wrong but only because they think they are doing good. A woman stuck in a relationship that’s toxic and emotionally abusive because she’s stuck and used to it and scares. A girl who is growing up and learning to be her own person without the help of someone she’s always known.
There are some rough parts in this book.. trigger warning for attempted rape, animal death and cruelty and abuse. But overall an amazing story!!
Also Alabama was mentioned and Outback Steakhouse, just happens to be where I live and work lol woohoo!!!
