There's something wrong with Rose.

From the outside, the Cane family looks like they have it all. A successful military father, a loving mother and five beautiful teenage daughters. But on the inside, life isn't quite so idyllic: the Cane sisters can barely stand each other, their father is always away and their neglectful mother struggles with addiction and depression.

When their youngest and most beloved sister, Rose, dies in a tragic accident, Mona Cane and her sisters are devastated. And when she is brought back from the dead, they are relieved. But soon they discover that Rose must eat human flesh to survive, and when their mother abandons them, the sisters will find out just how far they'll go to keep their family together.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The five Cane sisters, Juliet, Taylor, Anya, Mona, and Rose, seem to have it all: big house, good looks, prestigious father. But there are fissures in the Cane house, which grow when the beloved youngest, Rose, is killed in a freak accident, and their erratic, alcoholic mother goes to unscrupulous lengths to bring her back to life. But there are consequences to their mother's decision to resurrect Rose consequences that leave their basement bloodied and threaten to shatter the already tenuous relationship among the sisters. In Mona's first-person narrative, Lukavics employs horror movie-like pacing to trace the gradual dissolution of the Cane household. A slow-burn build-up leads to abrupt, shocking acts of violence, described in vivid, often grotesque language perfectly befitting the tone of the novel. Meanwhile, Mona's observations of her sisters' characters and her anxieties about her own isolation add a nice amount of emotion depth to the gory proceedings. While seasoned horror movie vets might see plot twists coming, Lukavics' eerie, chilly delivery and just the right amount of gore will satisfy nonetheless.--Hunter, Sarah Copyright 2017 Booklist"
