Missy Turner thinks of herself as the most ordinary woman in the world. She has a lot to be thankful for—a great kid, a loving husband, a job she enjoys and the security of living in the small town where she was born. Then one day everything gets turned upside down—she loses her job, catches her husband making out with the neighbor and is briefly taken hostage by a young man who robs the local café. With her world rapidly falling apart, Missy finds herself questioning the certainties she's lived with her whole life.
CM Magazine - April 30, 2010
"Whittall's prose demonstrates vitality and humour as she includes the minutiae of daily life among the bizarre events in Missy's adventureā€¦An entertaining read. Recommended."
