A Look at The Night Sister by Jennifer McMahon

The Night Sister is the first book I've ever read by Jennifer McMahon, but it was so good and engaging that I know it won't be my last. I got this to read and review for my other blog, Shooting Stars Mag, so there will be a full review over there soon. However, I wanted to post about the book here as well because it does feature a bisexual main character. Piper has been in love with her best friend Amy since she was young. In the story line that takes place more in the present (this book features three different timelines, that all go together - so it's not confusing!) Piper notes that she has had many relationships over the years, with both men and women, but she's always had Amy stuck in the back of her head. I like how none of this is a big deal in the novel. It's just stated - that's not what the book is about at all. It's refreshing to find titles like that!

Please share your thoughts about this book below - have you read it? Do you want too? What do you think about LGBT characters that are just there and it's no big deal?

I hadn't heard of this book before. Although I do think it's good to find books with LBGT characters that just are there and it's no big deal as that makes it seem more normal, which I think is a good thing.
