In Tina Seskis' debut novel One Step Too Far, Tina takes the reader on a wild ride with the most unexpected twist at the end. Most families are dysfunctional in one way or another since no one is perfect... especially when more than one person is involved! Add in a twin sister with emotional issues and an art for the dramatic, and you end up with more questions than answers.
After Emily runs away and begins life anew, she fails to grow as a person. Her life evolves around herself and she cannot see past herself. She accepts the blame for most everything. Why can't she understand it isn't all about her?

Throughout the book, I had problems following the storyline. I believe part of the issue was the "UK English" slang of which I am unfamiliar. I found I needed to reread a few passages to be able to understand the context. Also, midway through the book, the plot seemed to slow down. I found myself skimming to get to the next "Aha" part. Without giving anything away, the twist at the end dumbfounded me and a part of the ending was a letdown. My response... "Really?"
My rating: 3 out of 5 stars
I received a complimentary e-book of One Step Too Far from NetGalley and Kirk Parrolles in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
