Felt a touch rushed toward the end, almost as though the author didn't want to end telling the story, but felt she had to end it in 30 pages.

Jessie’s hardships and especially her resultant anxieties, irrational thoughts and hallucinations at times, were very odd.

If you haven't read anything by the author before, I wouldn't recommend starting with this, but if you're a fan of her other books then I think it's worth the effort to seek out a copy. I’ve read other reviews and people described their reaction to the twist as a gasp, or frustration, or pure hatred. Other great going-out-book authors on my list include Colette, Ruth Reichl, Dorothy Allison, ZZ Packer, Anthony Veasna So, and Torrey Peters, but your mileage may vary.

The narrators were excellent, both capturing the essence of their characters, especially as they reached their most desperate points. And, by the way, if you’re still unconvinced that you need a literary agent to secure a book deal, one of the best things about agents is that it’s their job to find out exactly what editors are looking for and which genres they represent.

That the social security number her mom gave to her belonged to a dead girl, sends red flags waving. Also, as a side note, I really loved the little nod in the book to one of Scarlett’s other novels… head to page 99 to find out which one! In the book, When the Lights Go Out, Ms Kubica introduces us to Eden, a young girl happily married to her spouse who decide to have a child.

I had a few misgivings about some of the character development: Julie, who's supposed to be 'weird' and virtually friendless, actually seems to have very little difficulty making friends; I wasn't sure I could believe that Luke would really have notched up four sexual relationships while confined to one room of his intensely overprotective mother's house; and I could never really get a clear idea of who David was supposed to be (at times he's portrayed like a monosyllabic, vulgar teenager, at others he seems the most mature of the whole group, and I couldn't reconcile the two sides of the character - they read like different people). There is so much pure love in this book, and you’ don’t always find that in a psychological thriller. In the meantime, twenty years earlier and miles away another woman, Eden, struggles with infertility. Jesse is a young 20-year-old grieving the loss of her mother and trying to figure out who she really is. I picked up this book because I enjoyed the author’s other two books THE GOOD GIRL and DON’T YOU CRY.When reviewing my favorite books over the years, Mary Kubica and Karin Slaughter are the only two authors landing on my Top Books of the year for five consecutive years! Your literary agent will have worked with you to give your manuscript the best possible chance of success, as she will know better than anyone that it all comes down to this: your shot at a traditional book deal.
