"The Art of Losing Yourself"

"The Art of Losing Yourself" is a wonderful new novel from Katie Ganshert; it is well-written and will stay with you long after you finish reading. 
To everyone who "joins" Carmen for breakfast every morning while she is sharing the daily weather report on television, Carmen has the ideal, perfect life.  However, no one truly knows the pain and longing that she is hiding.  Gracie can put on a good front and play the tough girl act; however she has been raising herself and taking care of her mother as well and only receiving attention when she is in trouble.  When the two sisters are reunited, it is not what either wanted or was planning on; however God's plans are not always the same as our own. 
I really enjoyed this book; Katie's writing flows so nicely even with switching perspectives.  I picked up this book thinking to just read the first few chapters and the next thing I knew I was 3/4 of the way through!  I was immediately drawn into the story and into the characters' lives.  Carmen and Gracie both were so easy to empathize with and I found myself connecting with them more and more throughout the book.
 If you are a fan of Lisa Wingate and/or Nicole Baart, then Katie Ganshert is another must-read author for you!
