Cath finds a book she can't remember buying on her bedside table and starts to read it. The book begins innocently enough but soon she begins to recognise that it tells of an event in her past.
There are enough details to prove to her that she is reading about her own life. And the title page has a red line through the disclaimer stating that the book is not based on real people or events.
As Cath tries to find out who wrote the book, and why, the author continues to take small steps to ruin Cath's life.
I liked the idea of this book but I'm glad I bought it cheaply on my Kindle when it was on special offer.
The plot was quite far-fetched in places, some of it quite hard to believe in, but the break-down of Cath's relationships was more believable.
One of the themes was examining how people are more inclined to believe the worst in others, even those they are meant to know and love. Opposite to that was another relationship, showing how people want to believe the best even when presented with evidence of the worst. I quite like how those issues and the consequences of them were explored towards the end.
