Anonymous Tip: In Which Gwen Gets Saved

A Review Series of Anonymous Tip, by Michael FarrisPp. 195-198I am beyond frustrated with this section. Just beyond frustrated. Peter waited anxiously in the church parking lot for Gwen, Casey, and the Mansfields. He had barely slept all night, even though he left Gwen's by ten-thirty.

Mary Lambert and the Ups and Downs of Being a Survivor

In the time I've spent around survivor communities, one thing I've noticed is an alternating feeling of euphoria and despair.

A Review Series of Anonymous Tip, by Michael FarrisPp. 193-195It's been a while since we've gotten a peak into Donna's personal life. We've only met Donna's boyfriend, Stephen, twice so far: once when we first met Donna waking up in bed with him back in chapter 1, and once when she told him about this particular case while eating lunch after the initial hearing.
