Someone Else's Life

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

When Rosie's mum dies from Huntingdon's disease she thinks life can't get any harder, until she discovers that Trudie wasn't her biological mother at all. So who is and what happened to her? As Rosie endeavours to piece together her complicated past and question her whole existence, she realises that, in order to discover who she really is, she has to reveal painful truths which have life-changing consequences for everyone around her.

Someone Else's Life is an engrossing and compelling story about the importance of family, friendship and dealing with the big emotional issues that life can throw at us. The reader is immediately drawn in to Rosie: the rollercoaster of emotions she experiences and difficult decisions she has to make are realistic and well-observed.
