The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks

One of those name-dropping stories - more about brandname handbags than actual character development. Add super manipulative plotting, and well, you can do better.

Not a celebrity memoir - but a gripping story about a young mixed boy surviving in South Africa. I learned so much about apartheid and South African culture. A highly compelling book!!!

“I'm crying for the little girl whose mother divorced her father, the girl who wanted to fall in love for the first time but wasn't ready for sex, the girl who dated a boy just because he wasn't the first one, the girl who fell hard for the guy with the easy smile and the green eyes, the girl who needed to prove she could hook up on a class trip, the girl who rand for student council just to impress a guy, the girl who lost her best friend, the girl whose father doesn't care anymore, the girl who doesn't have the money for college, the girl who just wants her grandma to fix everything, the girl who doesn't talk to anyone about anything, the girl who just can't fall in love again - even if a sweet guy folds a thousand paper cranes. Just for her.”
Sydney Salter, Swoon at Your Own Risk

“I think it's because he likes you.'
'Well, that's too bad. I've given up that kind of thing.'
'What kind of thing?'
'Love, dating, the inevitable ensuing heartbreak.”
Sydney Salter, Swoon at Your Own Risk

“You don't have anything to lose by standing up for yourself,' Nando said. 'But you can lose yourself by trying to please everyone.”
Sydney Salter, Jungle Crossing
