A brilliant mindfuck of a novel. ( )

Great book- hoping for a sequel to find out what happens to the boy and his plan. Thought I had it figure out but I was wrong- great read in just how powerful money can truly be for some people. I definitely recommend this book! ( )

Bit too similar to [Boy in a suitcase] ( )

Eight years ago, Gen went for a check up at the hospital at 37 weeks pregnant only to be told that the baby no longer had a heartbeat and had passed away in utero. She was given an emergency C-section to deliver the baby, a little girl that she and her husband Art named Beth.

Since they lost Beth, Gen has checked out. Art has worked at building his business, his reputation, making money. Gen, who had published three novels previously hasn’t written anything since Beth died. She teaches a few writing a week at a college but she can’t find any joy or satisfaction. They’ve been through 6 attempts at IVF and it’s failed every single time. It seems like Beth may have been her one and only chance to be a mother.

Then a woman knocks on her door and tells her that her baby had been born alive. The delivering obstetrician, the anesthetist, the midwife present in the theatre were all in on it. Somewhere, her baby is out there… waiting for her. Why would anyone do this?

Gen doesn’t know what to think, what to believe, who to trust. This woman sounds genuine and Gen is sure that she absolutely 100% believes what she is saying. She confides in Art, who immediately tells her that it couldn’t be possible, that he Then the woman tells Gen that Art was in on it, that her own husband is aware of what really happened that day and all of a sudden Gen feels like she can trust no one. Are they trying to make her believe she is crazy?

But what if she’s not? What if it’s really true and her baby is really out there?

I am not a writer but I think it must be really hard to write a great ending to a story. The ending here is pure genius! ( )
