Love can be a dangerous thing....

Hanna simply wants to be loved. With a head plagued by hallucinations, a medicine cabinet full of pills, and a closet stuffed with frilly, violet dresses, Hanna's tired of being the outcast, the weird girl, the freak. So she runs away to Portero, Texas in search of a new home.

But Portero is a stranger town than Hanna expects. As she tries to make a place for herself, she discovers dark secrets that would terrify any normal soul. Good thing for Hanna, she's far from normal. As this crazy girl meets an even crazier town, only two things are certain: Anything can happen and no one is safe.

Trippy is the word that comes to mind while I read the adventures of Hanna Jarvinen. Hanna is crazy. She only wears frilly, homemade purple dresses and has always been a weird girl. She takes a multitude of pills for her mental illnesses and she has hallucinations. She even hears her dead father's voice in her head. Hannah moves to Portero, Texas to live with her mom hoping to start a new life. Little does Hanna know that she has just moved to the one place that is even more insane than she is.
You never know what will happen next in BLEEDING VIOLET. It is brilliantly original and I can say with certainty that I never have and never will read anything else quite like it.
