THE BOOK by Jessica Bell

“The book has demons and has to go to the devil.”

Bonnie is determined to bury the book. Penny ensures her young daughter that it’s a token of love
and affection and that one day she will understand. However, Bonnie is convinced it does nothing but inflict pain on the people she loves. She wonders how grownups can be so stupid and not see what she sees. Then again, she know she’s just a child and does not understand most things about life. Grownups “smile when they’re sad and they cry when they’re happy. It’s silly.”

The road to Hell is paved with the best of intentions. A book that was created out of love develops into a representation of agony. Her parents write in it. Bonnie tells you how it interferes with her everyday life.

Jessica Bell has poetically scripted a love story so genuine and so pure, it could only be told in the innocent perspective of a five-year-old girl. She elegantly builds up an anticipating climax so horrific and yet, so authentic, it’ll captivate you. I guarantee after reading THE BOOK, the story will linger in your mind long after you've finished.
