“What you put out there and what people take away are two totally separate things. People’s minds process things in diverse ways. Everyone lives in different worlds, which is sort of sad but also has potential if you can work out how to turn it to your advantage.” – Ann Morgan.
I received a digital copy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.
Beside Myself is the story of Helen who has a twin sister, Ellie. One day, they decide to swap identities in order to play a trick, but then Ellie refuses to swap back and return to their normal selves.
Helen is now stuck as Ellie, she loses her clothes, her friends and even the favour of their mother and she can’t make things right because no one believes her.
Skip twenty-five years and Helen is still identified as Ellie, but when she receives a phone call for the first time in years, will she be able to finally make her family see the truth?
