written Crazy Love You it gets under your skin, you just devour the pages to see whether you were correct that is pulsating from beginning to end To me this is a slight departure from her previous work but it is a fantastic detour such a taut thriller that keeps you on edge throughout.Ian and Priss have been friends since childhood, they have always been there for each other, through the highs and lows of life nothing can seem to separate them They have their special place in the woods outside of the small town of The Hollows but they seem to encourage each other One thing that people agree on is that when Priss is around she is a bad influence on Ian, and bad things happen, which she does and Ian covers for her.As an adult Ian and Priss have escaped to New York, Ian is a respectable graphic novelist of the Fatboy and Priss stories, and has a cult following Priss lives in a squat and bum Young Ian lives with his family in a small town in Upstate New York and he is called Fatboy by his schoolmates He is bullied and tormented and his only solace is to run to the woods where he can feel safe It is there he meets Priss and they become best friends She sets out to get revenge on the boys that are tormenting Ian She is his protector and he worships her.Fast forward to present day Manhattan, NY Ian has lost weight and has become a very handsome, self confident man He is a successful graphic artist who has become wealthy by writing the Fatboy and Priss series When he meets Megan he falls instantly in love with her but Priss is having none of that Dark disastrous forces take over and Ian is again consumed with Priss powers over him Unwillingly, he is pulled into a mysterious web of terrorI m sure you must be weary, dear, with soaring up so high will you rest upon my little bed said the spider to the fly There are pretty curtains drawn around, the sheets are fine and thin and if you like to rest awhile, I ll snugly tuck you in O no, no, said the little fly, for I ve often heard it said, they NEVER, NEVER WAKE again, who sleep upon YOUR bedThe second verse of The Spider and the Fly by Mary Howitt Ian begins spiraling down and is consumed with Priss The first two thirds of CRAZY LOVE YOU is a five star book, the best kind, the kind that is unputdownable Ian writes and illustrates graphic novels a fancy term for comic books As an adult, he s in better shape, but he grew up as an overweight sissy His mother is confined to a mental hospital because of a horrible crime she committed when Ian was a child, a crime that almost involved him For these reasons, he grows up with anger management problems and still has them even now.Priss isn t that name a synonym for sissy is the child he meets in the woods behind his home But so what, I thought I was bored enough that I decided to quit if the story didn t redeem itself by page 50 On page 49 I caught on and realized I shouldn t have been bored Here s what you need to know right up front so the book is as unputdownable for you as it was for me I reread the first 49 pages Priss is not what she appears to be she is a mys Ian Paine has had a lot to deal with in his life As an overweight child,
