In this compulsively readable debut, set between London and Sicily over one blood-drenched week in the dead of summer, an identical twin reveals the crazy lies and twists she'll go through to not only steal her sister's perfect life, but to keep on living it. Alvie Knightly is a trainwreck: aimless, haphazard, and pretty much constantly drunk. Alvie's existence is made even more futile in contrast to that of her identical and perfect twin sister, Beth. Alvie lives on social media, eats kebabs for breakfast, and gets stopped at security when the sex toy in her carry-on starts buzzing. Beth is married to a hot, rich Italian, dotes on her beautiful baby boy, and has always been their mother's favorite. The twins' days of having anything in common besides their looks are long gone. When Beth sends Alvie a first-class plane ticket to visit her in Italy, Alvie is reluctant to go. But when she gets fired from the job she hates and her flatmates kick her out on the streets, a luxury villa in glitzy Taormina suddenly sounds more appealing. Beth asks Alvie to swap places with her for just a few hours so she can go out unnoticed by her husband. Alvie jumps at the chance to take over her sister's life--if only temporarily. But when the night ends with Beth dead at the bottom of the pool, Alvie realizes that this is her chance to change her life. Alvie quickly discovers that living Beth's life is harder than she thought. What was her sister hiding from her husband? And why did Beth invite her to Italy at all? As Alvie digs deeper, she uncovers Mafia connections, secret lovers, attractive hitmen, and one extremely corrupt priest, all of whom are starting to catch on to her charade. Now Alvie has to rely on all the skills that made her unemployable--a turned-to-11 sex drive, a love of guns, lying to her mother--if she wants to keep her million-dollar prize. She is uncensored, unhinged, and unforgettable.
Who knew being intelligent could create such suffering and unhappiness? Yet, I often receive people in consultation who complain about overthinking. Their minds never let them rest, even at night. They are fed up with their doubts, their questions, their acute awareness of things, their overdeveloped senses, unable to miss any detail. They just want to disconnect their minds, but they mostly suffer from being different, misunderstood and hurt by today's world. They often conclude by: 'I am not from this planet!' This book offers tools and piloting lessons for these overefficient brains.
Résumé - Les cinq blessures qui empêchent d'être soi-même de Lise BOURBEAU Les cinq blessures de l'âme et les masques qui leur sont associés. Si votre âme s'est incarnée dans ce corps, dans cette vie, c'est parce qu'elle avait besoin de se libérer des souffrances vécues dans vos vies antérieures. Pour atteindre cet objectif, votre âme a choisi le lieu, la famille et le corps idéal pour vous faire travailler, pardonner et accepter vos souffrances.Vous serez blessé dans les premières années de votre vie, entre votre conception et vos 6 ans, et suite à cela, vous créerez un masque destiné à vous protéger de situations similaires. Ce masque prend la forme de comportements qui, ensemble, peuvent correspondre à ce qu'on appelle "personnalité". En réalité, ce que vous aimez le moins chez vous n'est autre que ce masque, que vous enfilez pour éviter de revivre l'une de vos blessures. En apprenant à pardonner et à accepter, ces comportements importuns disparaîtront peu à peu et vous deviendrez de nouveau vous-même, comme lorsque vous étiez enfant. Dans ce résumé, vous allez apprendre: que la raison de votre présence sur Terre, dans votre corps, au sein de votre famille et de votre environnement, est de travailler l'une des cinq blessures (rejet, abandon, humiliation, trahison, injustice) et de vous en libérer ; que chaque blessure correspond à un masque dissimulant différents comportements ; que la personne blessée les endosse pour se protéger et ne pas souffrir encore plus ; comment reconnaître vos blessures et vos masques ainsi que ceux de vos proches ; comment faire vos premiers pas sur le chemin de la guérison et de l'acceptation.
