Sisterland by Curtis Sittenfeld
Another excellent slice of American life from the author of the brilliant American Wife.
Twin sisters Violet and Kate have 'the senses' - Violet embraces her psychic abilities, whereas Kate tries her hardest to have a normal life, looking after her two small children. But when Violet predicts an earthquake on national television, Kate is drawn into the fray.
With her witty observations on teenage angst, family love and suburban life, Curtis Sittenfeld is fast becoming our go-to author for a satisfyingly great read.
Join Curtis in February, when she'll be doing a transatlantic live webchat for Mumsnet book club.
