  • This is a book that speaks volumes

    I had the pleasure of reviewing Anne’s first book Sugar and Snails back in 2016 and loved every minute of it, so when I saw that Anne had written another book and the synopsis took my fancy, I was already hooked and eager to start reading. Becoming Someone is a short story collection featuring forty-two different stories that all share a common theme, identity. Throughout the book I found myself thinking about the issues of identity more deeply than I have ever before. It is a special ability to crack such a great punch with so few words. Although the stories share a theme they are also unique too and very compelling and poignant. I particularly liked the stories ‘Madonna and Child’, ‘A place of safety’, and ‘Reflecting Queenie’. These three stories really spoke to me. Madonna and Child is the story of a teenage mum’s daily routine, her trying to be a grown-up when she is still a child, her feelings towards having no help from others and also wanting to prove she can go it alone. The story also skillfully lets you know she is in denial about her child too. A Place of Safety tells the story of a young woman in a desperate situation, one she wants to get out of and with help arriving she needs to learn to trust people. Reflecting Queenie begins in a courtroom with someone being found guilty. We are then taken back on a journey over the years and the situation with the narrators little sister as she tries to work out where it all went wrong for her sister and how she turned into the woman she did. This is a book that speaks volumes and is well worth reading. Some of the stories are just a page long, others a couple of pages. It is a book that you can dip into now and again and one you don’t have to read in any particular order.

    Thanks for your feedback!
