Question: What would you get if you mixed Eleanor Oliphant with Room?
Answer: Strange Sally Diamond!

I loved this book so much! I have read and enjoyed everything Liz Nugent has ever written and Strange Sally Diamond is no exception. This was a read-it-in-one-sitting book for me. It was such a unique physiological thriller and I literally could not put it down. It is told in a very clever way via two points of view and two timelines that eventually collide into a surprising ending.

I loved how much Sally changed throughout the book and how much she grew despite her challenges. And although this book is very dark a lot of it was also very heartwarming, especially Sally’s voice and internal dialogue. She even had me laughing at parts. Sally felt very real to me and getting her backstory was shocking, to say the least but it explained very clearly why she is the way she is. As I said there are obvious Eleanor Oliphant vibes but Sally is a character in her own right as is her story. I really liked the vague ending and I hope there will be more in store for Sally.
