A Monster Like Me by Pamela Sparkman is a heartbreaking story where our main character believes he is a monster. It is a story of love and loss, revenge and redemption, forgiveness and pain. A prisoner of his past and horrors Zeph believes he deserves everyone’s hatred but with love and understanding is it possible to change not only his mind but his heart as well. The story is heart wrenching as even though you see the evil it is an evil not of his doing. Watching him suffer bought tears and heartfelt sorrow. For a story to provoke such strong emotions means it is a very well written story. This fantasy is unlike your usual fantasy, it is not all hearts and flowers and is pretty dark but is every bit as good.
