Beside Myself by Ann Morgan

When Helen first suggest swapping places with her twin she doesn’t know that it will be her last moments of being herself before her identity is stolen forever. She goes through her childhood and then adulthood in a suspended animation between what she should have been and what she doesn’t want to be. With inadequate parenting and a lost sense of self, Helen and Ellie are doomed but they continue their tragic lives adding more drama along the way.

This is a highly emotional and disturbing psychological thriller that centres around the idea of identity. The concept alone is uncomfortable but the protagonist’s experiences are laid out as snippets of raw and painful memories interspersed with a completely dysfunctional present day.

It is thought provoking and sad, nicely written and brilliantly executed.
