- Written by: Karin Slaughter

What if the person you thought you knew best turns out to be someone you never knew at all? Andrea Cooper knows everything about her mother, Laura. She knows Laura has spent nearly her whole life in the small beach town of Belle Isle, Georgia; she knows Laura's never wanted anything more than to lead a quiet, normal life in this conventional community; she knows Laura's a kind and beloved speech pathologist who helps others; she knows Laura's never kept a secret in her life. Andrea knows that Laura is everything she isn't - confident, settled, sure of herself.
This is the book that never ends; it just goes on

Very good and very quirky
The appeal to this book wasn't instant but it grew quickly and significantly. The main character is presented as quirky. The social element of her is presented/written so well it was felt painful at times. The writer made the character endearing and I found myself rooting for her in an oddly personal way. Great weaving of a past and present story.
