But the voice inside her head has a different name.

When the mysterious Ms. Karina finds Domino in an alleyway, she offers her a position at her girls' home in secluded West Texas. With no alternatives and an agenda of her own, Domino accepts. It isn't long before she is fighting her way up the ranks to gain the woman's approval.and falling for Cain, the mysterious boy living in the basement.

But the home has horrible secrets. So do the girls living there. So does Cain.

Escaping is harder than Domino expects, though, because Ms. Karina doesn't like to lose inventory. But then, she doesn't know about the danger living inside Domino's mind.

She doesn't know about Wilson.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! This book was freaking awesome!!! Domino has been homeless for about a year and finds herself in a situation when her best friend is arrested, and she has no money to bail him out. She happens to run into this lady named Madam Karina who offers her a position at her home. Things aren't what they seem. There is a person inside Domino's head that has been restless for quite some time. His name is Wilson, and he was one crazy fellow! Was I supposed to like Wilson? I don't know, but I did!!!! I also loved Cain, Poppet and Angie. There were twists and turns and this book was awesome! Go. Read. It!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4 "wilson is here" stars VIOLET GRENADE is aptly named as this story felt much like a bomb. It starts out small, feels almost familiar even if you've never held it before, but cannot be contained by it's packaging once the fuse is lit. And what happens after, in the wake of the explosion, is almost.. too much to process. That's this book in a nutshell. While this story is weird, filled with unusual characters and a completely unique premise, it's not beyond scope. It'll feel almost like something you've read before and yet totally turned on it's head. Scott's writing is heartbreaking and beautiful and out of this world amazing. The themes are dark and yet hopeful. The mystery compels you even as the journey to get there is fraught with conflict and uncertainties. And when everything comes to a head.. you cannot look away. For all the unreality of the setting, I'm sure in some ways it's very real. And that's how this book felt. It's a contemporary that seems almost fantasy, or maybe just fantastical, and yet so grounded and raw. I loved the characters, Cain most of all, but Domino was just.. something else. Being in her head was an experience and you won't be the only one in there with her! But that's all I'll say about that. This book is messed up and bizarre and tragic and whimsical and horrifying and yet even when you doubt you understand what's going on, even if you question pushing on, you will. Because when you hit that 50% mark you won't be able to put this down. VIOLET GRENADE will sink it's teeth into you and will not let you go. And you'll love the pain of the bite.
