SPUN by Catherine McKenzie

1aaa

Amber Sheppard, made famous for her role as The Girl Next Door, has been sober for two years now since her stint in rehab.  You would never know it though by the gossip magazines.  Every paparazzi picture of her wearing sun glasses means “hung over”, every shot of her looking too thin is “drug use”.  If that is not enough, she is still trying to avoid her other addiction as well, the hot movie star Connor Parks, who has tried to win Amber back since she quit him like her other unhealthy addictions.

Yet now, a text from Conner brings Amber to him… as one if often drawn to things that are not good for us… and the decisions she makes during this crucial time, will change her life forever.

 

 

 

 

I have enjoyed Catherine McKenzie’s writing and believe I have now read everything she has published.  When I read SPIN in 2012 I enjoyed it.  It was a different type of read for me with a new subject line… rehab.

Now Catherine McKenzie has written SPUN, a follow-up to the people who graced the rehab two years prior.  What I found interesting, was the main protagonist in SPIN was Kate, a tabloid reporter with a party-too-much-and-too-hard-problem, and Amber was someone she met in rehab.  It was interesting to see Amber’s story take the lead in SPUN, and Kate is now a secondary character.

It was fun to revisit these characters.  SPUN is written as a novella, 140 pages and worth your time.  Do you need to have read SPIN to enjoy SPUN?  No, but I would recommend SPIN as well as it is a fun read that leads right into SPUN.
