Daughter Book Summary:

Scarlet’s life is average. Her mother is overprotective, her friends are awesome, She’s interested in a cute boy, and she’s never known her father. When the FBI shows up and lets her know that her father was a serial killer. Now that he’s dying there’s only one person he’s willing to tell the location of some of the girls he has killed and that’s the daughter he hasn’t seen since she was a baby. Scarlet’s mother has tried to protect her from her father’s legacy but their life is completely uprooted when they come out of hiding. While some want information on her father others just blame her for what her father did. When things start to get dangerous she has to make the decision of going back into hiding or find a way to prove that she is not her father.

Daughter

What I thought:

So, I picked up Daughter by Kate Mclaughlin one because of the cover and two because the book kind of deals with a serial killer. I do not know how I would feel about finding out if my dad was a serial killer. If I had gone through years of my life not knowing what exactly my father is and it doesn’t come from my own mother then I really wouldn’t know how to feel about it. On top of that, I would be so mad about people blaming me for what he had done. I know there are tons of people who can’t really separate the two and that’s just sad. It kind of makes me question if people really think about these things.

One thing I really love about this book is that Scarlet has a great support system even though some outside of it was horrible to her. Things like this do make me wonder what it’s like for the kids. Does anybody have sympathy for them? I feel bad for the mother in this book as well because she did not deserve what she got. I guess her situation was a little crazy but “inexperienced” detectives get on my nerves. You can speculate all you want but you should always give people the benefit of the doubt.

Do books like this make you wonder about the family of serial killers as well?
