If "Carrie" had a sister she would be "Callis"
Loved this book! If Stephen King's "Carrie" had a sister or cousin she would be "Callis". The story is tragic on so many levels. I could not stop listening. I could see this book turned into a movie.
You have a beautiful little girl with a loving family but his is no ordinary girl. She has a gift, a gift that will destroy all she loves. MIx in nasty high school bullies, dysfunctional foster parents, and a witch and you have a recipe for trauma induced insanity.
For those who enjoyed reading Stephen King's "Carrie" you WILL LOVE "Callie Rose"!!!

I judge books by how late they keep me up
I have a sleep timer on my MP3 player that I set for 15 minutes when I go to bed, Callis Rose kept me up for 2 hours past bed time. Callis Rose is a girl who finds out early in life that she can control the physical actions of people around her, mostly when threatened and almost every time she uses her power, bad things happen. Mostly by chance and she's a sweet girl that he gets you to care about who takes care of the people around her but she keeps handed a bad hand and then there was a straw the broke the camels back.
Good job Mark, as usual, I ate it up. This isn't for the faint of heart, it shows what happens to a person when you push them beyond the breaking point.

Don't let the cover art put you Off
To be honest the cover artwork almostvput me off, gothic romance is what I thought, but how wrong I was. It did take me exhausting the entire Mark Tufo library to give Calls a chance and I am so glad I did. Callus is everything you would expect from a Tufo novel except it is a stand alone story, but, I was pleasantly surprised by a guest appearance by one of favourite Tufo characters. I have listened to the brilliant reading twice now and have enjoyed it both times.
