Is it better to live a lie of perfection when the truth is too ugly to survive?
Meg wants to overcome her crippling anxiety and depression which took hold after her mother’s death and her boyfriend, Austin, is supportive of her. Her therapist starts her on a trial drug what is supposed to cement new patterns in her brain. Or so she says
The pills help her and within days she has met a new friend, been stalked by a crazy man telling her that her friend isn’t real and that the pills will put her in danger. Along with a shady FBI guy who keeps popping up trying to find said crazy man.
Her boyfriend is also telling her something is wrong with the pills and the doctor and her, but she is too determined to take the art world by storm and be accepted by her new friends.
The friends were so creepy I knew they weren’t real. This is Kim Harrison so the fey were bound to be caught up in this.
I’m not sure if it was meant to be just a shorter story or there is more to come, but the ending was abrupt and did not leave me satisfied.
