April 2012 Debut of the Month.

A trenchantly observant novel about the often warring emotions between sisters that threaten to pull apart but sometimes even draw together familial ties.  It's at once hilarious, thought-provoking and poignant, this sparkling and devourable debut explores the roles that we play with our siblings, whether we want to or not.

Sarah Broadhurst

The Weird Sisters Synopsis

Rosalind. Bianca. Cordelia. The Weird Sisters. Rose always first, Bean never first, Cordy always last. The history of our trinity is fractious -- a constantly shifting dividing line, never equal, never equitable. Two against one, or three opposed, but never all together. Our estrangement is not drama-laden -- we have not betrayed one another's trust, we have not stolen lovers or fought over money or property or any of the things that irreparably break families apart. The answer, for us, is much simpler. See, we love each other. We just don't happen to like each other very much.
