Be sure to read her blog too--it's fantastic!
My Sister's Continent is a contemporary retelling of Freud's infamous "Dora" case study, following a loosely parallel plot and containing similarly controversial sexual themes and layers of possibilities. Kirby is a young woman attempting to come to terms with a "failed" bout of therapy while concurrently trying to decipher the truth about the life of her identical twin, Kendra. Two years after Kendra's mysterious disappearance, Kirby has only the journals Kendra left behind by which to examine her sister's--and her own--past. But when she is sent a skewed case study of herself by her former psychiatrist, she decides to respond by using Kendra's journals to reconstruct her final months with her sister and her brief time in therapy, finally creating her own version of the truth.
