What Alice Forgot

Front Cover
Penguin Adult, May 27, 2010 - Fiction - 512 pages

From the BESTSELLING author of BIG LITTLE LIES . . .

How can ten years of your life just disappear?

Alice is twenty-nine.

She adores sleep, chocolate, and her ramshackle new house.

She's newly engaged to the wonderful Nick

. . . and is pregnant with her first baby.

There's just one problem. That was ten years ago . . .

Alice slipped in her step-aerobics class, hit her head and lost a decade.

Now she's a grown-up, bossy mother of three in the middle of a nasty divorce and her beloved sister Elisabeth isn't speaking to her.

This is her life but not as she knows it.

Just how many mistakes can you make in a decade?

Can she ever get back to the woman she used to be?

3.5 stars. There were moments in this book when I thought the author brilliant, and other times when I was rolling my eyes while reading. I loved the middle of the book when the story reached its climax, but the rest of it was just okay for me. Read full review
