Publishers Description: An apparently happy marriage. A beautiful son. A lovely home. So what makes Emily Coleman get up one morning and walk right out of her life to start all over again? Has she had a breakdown? Was it to escape her dysfunctional family – especially her flawed twin sister Caroline who always seemed to hate her? And what is the date that looms, threatening to force her to confront her past? No-one has ever guessed her secret. Will you?

Review: Here are some the reviews so far: The book EVERYONE’S going to be talking about this summer. “Recommended.” Kirkus Reviews. “I couldn’t put it down! An intricate, tightly plotted story, engagingly told.” Helen Castor, author of She-Wolves, Sunday Times Books of the Year. “A well written, intriguing, cleverly structured and compelling read… The twist was excellent and I didn’t see it coming.” The Literary Consultancy

Wow! Ba-zing! Sky rockets in flight! In case people out there who wonder who Kirkus is, it is a review service that publisher’s and author’s PAY to have their shjt reviewed. An express service review by Kirkus costs about $600. So lets see, if I PAY you to review something, the expectation is that it will come out better than say, paying nothing to Koeur for an honest review.

So lets get to it! (I am soooo excited). This is the purest form of inner-dialogue writing, perhaps in all of existence. In so much, that the puking that ensued was conjoined with my collegiate poisonings of the past. This novel read like a bad day on the Titanic….being seasick then hitting an iceberg. I am astounded that anyone can write a whole novel that is almost, but not quite, a person talking to themselves. The cover art looks like Queer Eye for the Straight Guy redecorated a jail cell. If you’ve turned one page of this disaster you’ve taken one step too far.
