Here’s the set-up:

Childhood neighbors Suzie and Cecily lost touch when Suzie moved away after fifth grade. Through social media, they rekindle their offbeat friendship when they find they are simultaneously fighting cancer.

But Cecily has just learned from a reality television show that Suzie has died—of complications due to alcohol and drug abuse. Did Suzie really have cancer at all? Or was she, as the Dr. Dick show makes it appear, a compulsive liar and an alcoholic living in denial to the end?

Their relationship, and the truth about Suzie, is revealed through Facebook updates, emails and prose. Technology is both a story-telling device and an accomplice, facilitating the relationships and complicating them.

The Truth About Suzie explores the threads that hold us together and asks the reader what makes a relationship real. Does the virtual mirror of social media distort us, or do we distort it to reflect what pleases us about ourselves and hide what doesn’t?

“I love love love this book! … The Truth About Suzie is a wonderful testament to friendship and support in all it’s forms. … Funny and heart-wrenching, I laughed and I cried – often at the same time. Avery honest look at breast cancer and the impacts it has on our relationships,including the gifts that can come with cancer — renewed connections, insight and love. This is one of those rare books that will live on in my mind for years to come. Everyone should be lucky enough to read it!”5 star Amazon review
