In her latest novel, The Opposite of Everyone, bestselling author Joshilyn Jackson tells the story of a successful lawyer who is forced to revisit her traumatic past when her estranged mother goes missing. Joshilyn's previous novel, Someone Else's Love Story, was a LibraryReads winner, and now The Opposite of Everyone is one too! Today we're very excited to welcome her to LLF to share her love for libraries.
Lying in Libraries
I come by my love of libraries naturally; my mother practically raised me up inside of them. My father was in the army when I was young, and we moved all over: Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Virginia, Kentucky… In every new town, my mother would find the closest library practically before she found the Piggly-Wiggly.
The library is also where I learned to lie.
