Don't tell me what to think about your book

I try to glance at the Audible Daily Deals every day and usually manage it on the weekdays. Today's deal features the kind of subtitle (or is it supposed to be a tagline?) that gives me a kneejerk "I'd hate this" reaction. It's bad enough when this kind of thing is the first sentence in the book's description, but when it's part of the actual title it's just embarrassing.



Just call it The Child Next Door, please. I don't need you to tell me that I will consider it "unputdownable." And I get to decide whether I think a book's twist is "brilliant." I checked, and this isn't just an Audible mistake, it's on the Amazon and Barnes & Noble product pages for the paperback as well.
