Ella doesn't remember what it's like to be human; after all, she's lived as a doll for thirty years. She forgets what it's like to taste, to breathe...to love.
She watches the professor create other dolls, but they don't seem to hang around for long. His most recent creation is Lisa, a sly goth. Ella doesn't like Lisa. How could she, when Lisa keeps trying to destroy her?
Ella likes the professor's granddaughter though, even if she is dying. It's too bad the professor wants to turn Gabby into a doll, depriving her of an education...depriving her of life.
With time running out and mad dolls on the rampage, Ella questions her very existence as she unearths the secrets buried in her past; secrets that will decide whether Gabby will befall the same fate...
So I just finished reading Broken Dolls. I hadn’t heard of this author previously. She had only written one book prior to this one and that was a few years ago.
Well… I was completely engrossed in this book from the start. I absolutely loved the characters and the descriptions. I could see in my minds eye what each and every one of them looked like. I could picture Lisa running around insanely trying to “break” Ella.
There were so many twists and turns in this story, I couldn’t decide who was the good guy and who was the bad guy. I really did not see that ending coming at all!! I loved it!
There was a preview of another book called Shattered Girls and I can’t wait for that one to come out. In the meantime, I am going to get her previous book Dumb Luck. I hope it is as good as this one.
