Product description

Product Description

At the age of seventeen, Paige Alexander had it all planned. She wrote a letter, sat in the bath, and slit her wrists. Her plan failed.

Her best friend, Alex, is dead.

Paige can’t get over her twin sister blaming her for a tragic event in their past.

Colorado is in the midst of voting on lesbian and gay rights and Paige is terrified to come out of the closet, fearful for her life.

Many people in Paige’s life are keeping secrets from her. Will she piece everything together before it’s too late?

In this gripping first-person narrative, a young college student grapples with more than first loves or coming of age. In a world filled with homophobia, suicidal feelings, and a dysfunctional family, Paige cuts her wrists in an attempt to free herself from the crazy life that’s all she’s ever known.

Could there be new lessons in store for Paige? With the help of her girlfriend, friends, and a compassionate therapist, can Paige find the safe space she needs to heal, grow, and cut her strings?

“I read Marionette in one sitting. Then I went back to read it again for this review and was just as delighted the second time.” -- Reviewed by Jo Bryant for Blog Critics

“You know how sometimes a book just slowly creeps up on you and before you know it, you are right there, in the moment and the rest of the world has disappeared? Marionette by T. B. Markinson did that to me!” -- Tome Tender Blogspot

“I thought I knew where it might end, but I was surprised where the tale took me. It's not often a book can surprise me anymore.” -- Christine Rains, author of Fearless
