Praise for The Other Us:
‘An engaging and thought-provoking read’ – Daily Mail
‘What an absolutely brilliant book. It captures all the emotions of the 'what if' times in your life when you're low and wonder if you've made the right choices and dream how life could have been. It carries you on a journey in which you live Maggie's 'what if' and somehow see your own. The pages turned and each stage I was rooting for Maggie to see her way forward and was left filled with a love for this life, this now.’ Liz Fenwick
‘A bittersweet roller coaster ride into the past; unexpected, perceptive and a little bit heart-breaking. Essential reading for those of us who came of age in the 90s, and for anyone who's ever asked the question 'what if…?' – Iona Grey
‘Touching, uplifting and emotional―I was pulled into this moving story of a woman questioning love, and finding herself.’ – Julie Cohen

The thought of getting another go at being twenty-one had my mind travelling back to when I was that age, although it certainly wasn't in 1992 like Maggie as I would have only been ten-years-old.
I wondered if there was a logical reason for what was happening to Maggie, it seemed as though she might be dreaming but I couldn't be sure. I loved jumping through her life and seeing where her choices would take her next, I was hooked by the idea of it and intrigued as to where it would end. It was just so easy to keep flipping the pages.
You may know by now that I love a good twist, well this book had plenty of them. Just as I thought things were headed in one direction something would come along and twist it all up, leaving me (okay, maybe not me but definitely the characters) facing a completely different direction.
I repeatedly changed my mind as to which life I thought was the right one for Maggie but as I read the final pages I felt content with the result. One question though - where's Billy now?
This was a thought-provoking and compelling story that sent my imagination into overdrive. A must read!
