Putting Alice Back Together is the brand spanking new book by Carol Marinelli and I have to tell you it is superb. So great in fact, I abandoned the housework last week and read it in pretty much one go.
And if you do judge this book by its cover you might be a little shocked indeed. I don't know what I would expect the cover to actually look like, but it wouldn't be what the publishers choose...
Putting Alice Back Together has been described as:
Alice is the friend you wish you had. The girl who makes a party more fun, pulls a funny face to make you feel better, drinks wine out of a mug and makes you laugh while you're crying over an ex.
Alice is totally happy, everything is amazing and there is nothing at all to worry about...except, well:
Her job was really great - 10 years ago.
The sexiest guy alive doesn't want her -because he's gay.
Her credit card bills are under her bed - unopened.
But maybe the biggest problem for Alice is that she has a secret. A secret so big she can't tell anyone. How do you keep a secret like that when everything is starting to fall apart? And once it's out there, how do you ever begin to put yourself back together again?
And that really does sum it up perfectly. It is a wonderful novel that sucks you in right from the beginning and doesn't let you go to well after you have turned the last page.
Putting Alice Back Together explores so many issues that are just to 'heavy' for your usual chick lit books. Issues like anxiety and depression and well her problematic relationship with prescription medications and wine...
You will laugh with Alice, you will cry with Alice and you will certainly grieve with Alice as you join her on her journey of self discovery.
