6:30pm. 3rd floor of the Main Library. Registration is not required. My Sister's Voice by Mary Carter. Published 2010 by Kensington Publishing corporation. Paperback, English. ISBN: 9780758229205. Carters talent continues to evolve, as evidenced in this solid offering about deaf artist Lacey Gears, whose happy life,good boyfriend, rising career, faithful dog, is upended when she receives a mysterious note informing her that she has a twin sister she didn't know existed. Lacey soon discovers the message is true and that she's not an orphan as she had thought: her parents put her up for adoption and kept her hearing twin, Monica. As she comes to terms with this, she reconnects with her sister, but the secrets kept by her birth family could have dire consequences. Though the plot is limp in spots, Carters command of deaf culture is superb, and Lacey is a charismatic heroinea nice contrast to her unstable, clingy twin. The unique spin Carter ("Accidentally Engaged") takes on the familiar theme of self-discovery gives this a welcome, fresh feeling. "(June)" Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
