Yesterday I picked up a new read – one of the ARCs I received from the last Harper Collins event that I had attended. There is a lot of excitement about the debut novel of Kate Elizabeth Russell titled My Dark Vanessa. The blurb intrigued me as the novel is the story of a woman who was targeted by a sexual predator (her teacher) when she was a teenager.
The inside flap of the book contains the following quote:
“It’s just my luck,” he said, “that when I finally find my soulmate, she’s fifteen years old.”
I am interested to see where the author takes this story. So far the writing is perfectly pitched.
Would you open the pages of the novel to read?
