What if something you said in private, to your sister, went viral? What if everything you said went viral? Find out, in Lisa Beazley’s charming debut novel, as two sisters deal with the fall out of an experiment in communication gone horribly wrong.
Cassie and Sid Sunday have not done a bang-up job of keeping in touch. In their defense, it hasn’t been easy: life veered in sharply different directions for the once-close sisters many years ago. Today, beautiful and big-hearted Sid lives an expat’s life of leisure in far off Singapore, while harried, iPhone clutching Cassie struggles as a wife and mom in Manhattan.
And then one Christmas Eve, in an act of social media rebellion, Sid issues a challenge: For one year, the sisters won’t even try to call or email or track one another on Facebook. Instead, they will write real, old-fashioned letters — and just see if they can’t reclaim some of that close-as-sisters-can-be magic of their youth.
As it turns out, they can. The experiment exceeds both of their expectations, and the letters become a kind of mutual confessional that have real and soul-satisfying effects. They just might have the power to help Cassie pull her marriage out of the gutter, and give Sid the strength to get her life back on track. But first, one of Cassie’s infamous lapses in judgment will come back bite her.
Schadenfreude at it’s best, Keep Me Posted will have readers laughing, cringing, and cheering as the Sunday sisters learn that having their most private thoughts become incredibly public can change their lives in surprising, terrifying, and ultimately uplifting ways.
