Rule One—Nothing is right, nothing is wrong.
Rule Two—Be careful.
Rule Three—Fight using your legs whenever possible, because they’re the strongest part of your body. Your arms are the weakest.
Rule Four—Hit to kill. The first blow should be the last, if at all possible.
Rule Five—The letters are the law.
If you thought that having a seventeen year old as a serial killer is silly, think again. Nothing about Kit is silly. She is a cold-blooded killer who is precise and does everything with absolute detail.
“I kill on order. I am everyone's assassin. I belong to no one but the grim reaper herself.”
Having to train from her mother, Kit knows exactly what she needs to do to make this world better. Take people out one by one if they betrayed someone or broke someone's heart. When a letter comes in from her school, she knows she will do it soon but there are some planning that she has to do first. With everything piling on, she also befriends a cop that is unofficially working on the Perfect Killer case.
“Sometimes I imagine we're all like paper stars, folded up and gathered together, each of us convinced that we are glittering and celestial, each of us bent into a shape so we believe we're something we're not.”
Incredibly entertaining, I definitely loved the writing and the way characters were set up. Having Kit transform into another version of herself can tell that she has issues but the actual danger of her actions are unbelievable. Great read!
