May 2016 Debut of the Month.

An entertaining, perceptive and sharply witty debut, this is a novel that will have you cringing one minute and smiling the next. Sisters Cassie and Sid, separated by half the world, decide to put pen to paper and renew their once strong connection by writing to each other. They end up using the sometimes wince inducing letters as a means of escape and confession, but horrors of horrors, what was meant for their eyes only, ends up plastered all over the internet. We read both sets of letters, and while the sisters have a shared past, Lisa Beazley skilfully creates two distinct characters in Cassie and Sid, each with their own voice. Aside from the letters, Cassie also tells her own story, and while she may fantasise about another life on paper, we see what is really going on inside her mind. ‘Keep Me Posted’, full of observations about modern life, is an amusing, penetrating and enjoyable read.

Keep Me Posted Synopsis

Cassie and Sid Sunday, once as close as sisters could be, have drifted apart. Cassie’s struggling as a stay-at-home mother to twin toddlers in Manhattan, while Sid lives an expat’s life of leisure in far-off Singapore. It doesn’t help that Sid spurns social media while Cassie is addicted to her iPhone.

So when Sid suggests they reconnect the old-fashioned way—through real, handwritten letters—Cassie is on board. Intimate and honest, their correspondence becomes a kind of mutual confessional and renews their bond. But Cassie’s made a big mistake—one that their relationship, not to mention their marriages, might not survive.

Keep Me Posted is a fresh and funny debut about the struggles of keeping in touch, keeping it real and keeping it together.
