This is certainly one of the best books I read in the past year.  It’s fresh and funny, yet somehow heartening and grounding.  Here is what I wrote about it when first released:

This is the The Talented Mr. Ripley for the newest generation. It’s a twisting tale of identity and the search for true companionship. (read the full review)

Jansma’s debut novel comes out in paperback soon and I highly recommend it for the intelligent reader in your life.  In the meantime, I have one copy to giveaway…
