Can You Keep a Secret?
written by Sophie Kinsella
While at the basic core of it all, the plot is an interesting and enjoyable one, that's really all it is--basic. There are no subplots, and plenty of minor characters that could have had interesting stories. Kinsella's storytelling has, no doubt, developed over time, as Remember Me? certainly had subplots. Still, this is not her best work. It was easier to get into than the other books, starting off very interestingly while the others took a while to really get interesting. It's definitely a good premise (if not highly Queen of Babble-ish, although I'm pretty sure this came first), and was delivered well, just lacked oomph. It's all told in a little bubble though, in her office and small parts elsewhere. Just a little too little.
