Odd One Out

Odd One Out by Monica McInerney

After Unholy Messenger I needed something light and fluffy to read. Monica McInerney fits the bill perfectly.

Sylvie is the down trodden, non artistic family member of a high profile artistic family. She is the one who manages all the adminstration and boring things so her mother and sisters can be creative. Her brother, recongnising how she is being used and abused whisks her off to Melbourne to "find herself" and discover a life away from the rest of the families controlling influences.

And really, that's all there is to say about this! Standard chick lit that took me less than 2 hours to read, but gave me a really good break from the heavier stuff.
