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.

WE ARE ALL COMPLETELY BESIDE OURSELVES KAREN JOY FOWLER
Wow Just wow It is rare that a book can truly get me with its twist the way this one did I truly did not see it coming This is Rosemary Cole's story, the story of her life as a young child. Her childhood with her sister Fern and brother Lowell was truly unique. Now, as an adult, her brother and sister are gone, but where are they I can't tell you here, you need to read this book to find out and I guarantee you'll be just as shocked as me Wonderfully written, Rosemary's witty storytelling really draws you in and she is a very likeable character. This book makes quite a statement about family relationships, unconditional love and what it means to be a human being. This is the best book I've read all year so far, and that's REALLY saying something Reviewed by 30cs
