The less you know about Liz Coley’s Pretty Girl-13, the better to avoid spoilers. You’ll want to discover this one for yourself, to read in as few sessions as possible, because this is a story that doesn’t quit. Engaging, emotional, and unforgettable, the novel traces Angie Chapman’s discovery of her dissociative identities and dealing with them. This is a book I didn’t want to stop reading, and it appeals on so many levels: drama, secrets, trauma, mental illness, psychology, and – my favourite – psychosurgery. This harrowing story and its telling is a masterpiece.

I don’t understand how the fire started, though. That’s my only problem.
