The Weird Sisters


by Eleanor Brown

Amy Einhorn Books (Putnam)

$24.95 Hardcover; $15.00 Paperback

Reason why I would buy this book as a gift this Christmas:  I fell in love with the novel, The Weird Sisters, because of its themes: sisterly bonds, jealousy and betrayal, the disappointments of adulthood, and how to find the way home again after things crumble down around you. The fresh voice and unusual perspective (first-person plural) combine to hint at a sort of collective-consciousness, as if Rosalind, Cordelia, and Bianca are connected so deeply that they can sense each other’s thoughts and agree (or disagree) without words. This novel makes you want to forgive your family, and yourself, for past-imperfections and just love what’s there, which is why this is the perfect Christmas buy.
