While I was scoping out Barnes and Noble during my weekly Over the Bridge jaunt, I asked a bookseller if she could help me find those books for Zack. After helping me, she said, "You do know there's an author who writes those for adults, right?"
Color me intrigued.
"Pretty Little Mistakes" by Heather McElhatton is called a "Do-Over Novel". There are 150 possible endings. Quoting the back cover:
"You may end up in an opulent mansion or homeless down by the river; happily married with your own corporation or alone and pecked to death by ducks in London; a Zen master in Japan or morbidly obese in a trailer park."
I haven't started it yet, but plan to this weekend. Have any of you read it? Anyone want to read it now?
