內容簡介

如《房間》般扣人心弦,如《伊莉莎白不見了》般強勁,如《控制》般緊湊而出人意料!

一場嚴重失控的童年遊戲、一個身分錯置的殘酷玩笑
當個資盜取達到極致,而小偷卻是你的雙胞胎妹妹,永不止息的夢魘,就此展開……

Ellie活在雙胞胎姊姊Helen的陰影之下,她不如姊姊如此聰明又受歡迎,不像姊姊受媽媽疼愛,在學校接受特殊教育、沒有朋友,總是被忽略的那一個孩子。大家都說,她們兩個就像同一個豆莢裡的兩顆豌豆,但兩人都知道這根本不是事實:Helen是領導者,Ellie只不是跟隨在身後的影子……直到六歲的她們,決定玩交換身分的遊戲為止。

原本Helen只是為了好玩、只打算交換身分一天,但當遊戲結束,Ellie卻拒絕和姊姊換回來時,Helen的噩夢開始了。Ellie成了受歡迎的Helen,而Helen漸漸失去了自我。

二十五年後的一場意外,讓事情因而出現轉機,但Helen卻也可能再度被帶往危險境地之中……

As gripping as Room, as powerful as Elizabeth is Missing, Beside Myself is the story of twin sisters, a childhood game with devastating consequences and the slippery nature of identity Helen and Ellie are identical twins - like two peas in a pod, everyone says. The girls know this isn't true, though: Helen is the leader and Ellie the follower. Until they decide to swap places: just for fun, and just for one day. But Ellie refuses to swap back...And so begins a nightmare from which Helen cannot wake up. Her toys, her clothes, her friends, her glowing record at school, the favour of her mother and the future she had dreamed of are all gone to a sister who blossoms in the approval that used to belong to Helen. And as the years pass, she loses not only her memory of that day but also herself - until eventually only 'Smudge' is left. Twenty-five years later, Smudge receives a call from out of the blue. It threatens to pull her back into her sister's dangerous orbit, but if this is her only chance to face the past, how can she resist? Beside Myself is a compulsive and darkly brilliant psychological drama about family and identity - what makes us who we are and how very fragile it can be.
