Been Reading About New York Again!

So...the weather has been great and my deck chair was calling.  I read 3 books this last week... I KNOW! CRAZY! Oh yeah, and  BSC is over.                                                                                           A new author (to me anyway) Shanna Mahaffey has done a remarkable job with a book called "Sounds Like Crazy."  It is the story of a waitress (yay) in New York city who has 5 people living inside her head.  She ends up getting fired (again) from her waitress job and getting voice over work.  I have to adnit I was a little resistent to pick this one up because I was so traumatized at age 11 by reading "I Never Promised You A Rose Garden"  and of course who wasn't mesmerized and a little freaked out by "Cybil!"  I could not put this book down.  The characters  fascinating and I couldn't wait to find out the impetus for her DID.   Thankfully I found it more tender than horrifying and was grateful there wasn't horrendous torture, or worse, involved.  This would be AN AMAZING! book for a book club many things to delve into!
