Part detective story, part gripping psychological drama, this is a fast-paced read with a convincing set of characters and an original storyline featuring one girl with two identities but which one is real?

Synopsis

Somewhere Else by Sandra Glover

Zan is worried about his sister, Jade, who doesn't seem to recognise family and friends. Even more disturbing, Jade insists she's Janet Bailey, a girl from another time and place. This must be the result of Jade's recent horrific ordeal, musn't it? But if it's Post Traumatic Stress then why are her memories of being Janet so utterly vivid?
