The Darkest Powers by Kelley Armstrong

“Mommy forgot to warn the new babysitter about the basement. Chloe teetered on the top step, chubby hands reaching up to clutch both railings, her arms shaking so much she could barely hang on. Her legs shook, too, the Scooby Doo heads on her slippers bobbing. Even her breath shook, puffing like she´d been running.” 

‘You…,’ she says, 'killed a man?’ The apprehensive look. I know it well-that moment when they’re certain they’ve misheard. Or that I mean it in a metaphorical way. I broke a man’s heart. Which is true. A bullet does break a heart. Irrevocably, it seems.
—  City of the Lost; Kelley Armstrong
How could a parent blame her child for not overcoming a mental illness? It was like pushing a reluctant student to get a passing grade. It was like blaming one with a learning disorder for not getting As.
