A contemporary parable of identity

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Looking for a fun, yet thought-provoking novel? Your wish has been granted. Meet Isabelle, the most delightful and unlikely felon you’ll ever encounter. Yes, she’s truly a criminal; identity theft is, indeed, a felony. She doesn’t set out to be a felon, certainly feels uncomfortable upon discovery of her crime, and continually (with the best of intentions) plans to come clean, but things just keep happening. Good things. Things she’s always wanted—some knowingly, some not—to happen. And, it’s difficult to apply the brakes, let alone turn around, when the drive is going so smoothly.

But, there are morals and there are morals. Whether or not you agree with Isabelle’s actions on a moral, legalistic level, the actual morals (i.e. teachings) of the novel—it is a contemporary parable, after all—offer insights to all readers. Adolescents need to read Isabelle while adults of any age will enjoy and benefit from the gentle nudges/reminders it affords. Above all, we could all use a little more laughter. Get ready to laugh and to learn.
