The author deftly succeeds in writing a book within a book, each one beautifully complementing the other."--Atlanta Journal-Constitution "Jackson offers more here than a great plot with relatable, memorable characters and crazy storylines. This cleverly crafted, original tale centers on racism and the dichotomy of the South, as well as complicated familial relationships and elderly care. In other words, she writes fictional tales about real life."--Fredericksburg.com "Only Joshilyn Jackson can present such serious issues with so much humor and humanity, making us consider just how far we might go to protect the ones we love."--Brunonia Barry, NY Times bestselling author of The Lace Reader & The Fifth Petal "Witty, cleverly constructed and including a truly surprising twist, Someone Else's Love Story turns out to be a nuanced exploration of faith, family and the things we do for love."--People (3 ? stars), SOMEONE ELSE'S LOVE STORY "Beautifully written, fascinating and deep, The Opposite of Everyone is another must-read novel by Jackson... Jackson has done a phenomenal job of weaving the past with the present and unfolding the story layer after layer.

Both literary and women's fiction readers will appreciate Leia's smart/sassy narrative."--Library Journal (starred review) "Jackson has written another spirited page-turner... A satisfying, entertaining read from an admired writer who deserves to be a household name.
