A Superb Coming of Age Novel with a Paranormal Twist
Abandoned orphan Carolina Brown wants nothing more than to be left alone with her cookbooks and her vivid imagination. And she won’t hesitate to fight (and bite) until she gets her way.
Unable to speak, Cara has no memory of her past and little hope for her future. So when a mysterious couple appears, promising to help unlock the secrets surrounding her, Cara reluctantly takes a chance at a new life.
Flung abruptly into a new world, Cara embarks on an extraordinary adventure that forces her to question everything she knows about reality. About her past, her future and the world around her, including what it means to be human.
Alternately funny and heartbreaking, The Opposite of Living brilliantly explores the fierce, often tragic, beauty of being alive.
