Summary

"The book is brilliant. It reads like a memoir and grips like great fiction should - beautiful characterization" -- Viga Boland - No Tears For My Father

Talented pianist Megan Youngblood has it all – fame, fortune and Gideon.

But Gideon isn’t good enough for Megan’s ambitious, manipulative mother, whose meddling has devastating repercussions for Megan and for those close to her.

Now, trapped inside her own body, she is unable to communicate her needs or fears as she faces institutional neglect in an inadequate care home.

And she faces Annie. Sadistic Annie who has reason to hate her. Damaged Annie who shouldn’t work with vulnerable people.

Just how far will Annie go?

Someone Close to Home is a story of love, malice and deadly menace.

Very off-putting narration

The narration is terrible. Her dry mouth and sticky clicky fluffy mouth noises are gross.
Surely the production company heard all this when creating the recording! Very odd and unprofessional sounding.
Fair story.

Wonderful

Sad and beautiful ...a sad testament to the way the disabled are warehoused for profit. Humans need to do better.
