Rating: 4.5 stars
Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher who gave me an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
A sad and dark story about identical twins Ellie and Helen, who decide to switch identities in a prank that goes horribly wrong. Mental health issues are the underlying theme here and it makes for uncomfortable reading at times.
Once started this book is very difficult to put down and whilst I can't say it was a book I 'enjoyed' in the usual sense of the word, it was nevertheless a fascinating read. Most of the characters aren't particularly likeable, but even so I did find myself feeling some empathy for them at times, even when I really didn't want to.
'Beside Myself' is a darkly disturbing but fascinating book that kept me gripped right to the very end. A highly recommended 4.5 stars.
