This week I’ve decided to take my teaser from The Mirror World of Melody Black by Gavin Extence. It normally wouldn’t be the type of book I go for but it was chosen for my book club so I was forced out of my comfort zone. It’s a story about living with a mental illness and how just the smallest thing (like finding your next door neighbours body) can cause your life to spin totally out of control.
So what, exactly, defined the line between crazy and not crazy? The more I thought about it, the more it seemed that sanity was just a matter of behaviour. Its degrees could be measured by the cleanliness of your hair, the set of your facial features, how you respond to a series of social cues.

It definitely makes for an interesting and at times uncomfortable read.
Happy reading everyone.
