Summary

One woman, many personas. But which is telling the truth?

Alexa Wú is a brilliant yet darkly self-aware young woman whose chaotic life is manipulated and controlled by a series of alternate personalities. Only three people know about their existence: her therapist, Daniel; her stepmother, Anna; and her enigmatic best friend, Ella. When Ella gets a job at a high-end gentleman’s club, she is gradually drawn into London’s cruel underbelly. With lives at stake, Alexa follows her friend on a daring rescue mission. Threatened and vulnerable, she will discover whether her multiple personalities are her greatest asset, or her biggest obstacle.

The narrative that makes the story..

A very real truth runs though this story that we all see..differently.
Its difficult to review without spoilers but if the recent court ruling of guilty for a celebrity in the American music industry makes you happy, this is for you.
This is a work of fiction but it is not Split.
The underpinning themes here are very non fiction for huge areas worldwide especially (not exclusively) for girls and women.
