A Superb Coming of Age Novel with a Paranormal Twist

Abandoned orphan Carolina Brown wants nothing more than to be left alone with her cookbooks and her vivid imagination. After all, fleeing into an elaborate fantasy world is the only way to endure her existence at the Institution.

Unable to speak, and tormented by harrowing dreams, Cara has no memory of her past and little hope for her future. So when a mysterious couple appears, promising to help unlock the secrets that surround her, Cara reluctantly takes a chance at a new life.

Flung abruptly into a world of riddles, where nothing is as it seems, Cara is led on an extraordinary adventure that forces her to question everything she knows about reality. About her past, her future and the world around her, including what it means to be human.

Alternately funny and heart breaking, The Opposite of Living brilliantly explores the fierce, often tragic, beauty of being alive.
