Whatever It Takes.
From the time they were children, the twins Kellie and Lacette Graham have been polar opposites. Lacette is kind and considerate, while Kellie is serf-centered, greedy and jealous of her sister.
Two surprising events spark the beginning of this fourth novel by Forster. Her earlier novels include If You Walked in My Shoes and Blues From Down Deep (Dafina Books/Kensington Publishing, 2004 and 2003, respectively).
At 33, both Kellie and Lacette behave--and are treated--as though they are much younger. A great portion of this story revolves around the lengths (and depths) to which Kellie will go to undermine her sister.
Many of the events and situations are contrived and, hence, not quite believable. Some surprising twists and turns are included, and some questions beg to be answered. Forster's fans will undoubtedly be compelled to keep reading and find the answers. The reading group guide will help spark lively, thought-provoking discussions.--Reviewed by Mary N. Oluonye Mary N.
