Rosemary's young, just at college, and she's decided not to tell anyone a thing about her family. So we're not going to tell you too much either: you'll have to find out for yourselves, round about page 77, what it is that makes her unhappy family unlike any other. Rosemary is now an only child, but she used to have a sister the same age as her, and an older brother. Both are now gone - vanished from her life. There's something unique about Rosemary's sister, Fern. And it was this decision, made by her parents, to give Rosemary a sister like no other, that began all of Rosemary's trouble. So now she's telling her story: full of hilarious asides and brilliantly spiky lines, it's a looping narrative that begins towards the end, and then goes back to the beginning. Twice. It's funny, clever, intimate, honest, analytical and swirling with ideas that will come back to bite you. We hope you enjoy it, and if, when you're telling a friend about it, you do decide to spill the beans about Fern - it's pretty hard to resist - don't worry. One of the few studies Rosemary doesn't quote says that spoilers actually enhance reading.

“Disappointing”

I'm in the minority of reviewers here, because I didn't enjoy this book at all. It was disappointing with little point to it. There wasn't a middle high point and it eventually petered out to a... More

“We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves”

Before reading this book, most of the publicity I'd seen about it had been about 'the twist' - which was original and pretty great - but what I loved most about this book was purely the writing and the... More

“Good read?”

This book was recommended to me and while it's well written I have to say that it wasn't my idea of a good read, I prefer thrillers,mystery types.
