The Imposter's Daughter by Laurie Sandell giveaway!!!

From Hatchette Book Group:

Laurie Sandell grew up in awe (and sometimes in terror) of her larger-than-life father, who told jaw-dropping tales of a privileged childhood in Buenos Aires, academic triumphs, heroism during Vietnam, friendships with Kissinger and the Pope. As a young woman, Laurie unconsciously mirrors her dad, trying on several outsized personalities (Tokyo stripper, lesbian seductress, Ambien addict). Later, she lucks into the perfect job--interviewing celebrities for a top women's magazine. Growing up with her extraordinary father has given Laurie a knack for relating to the stars. But while researching an article on her dad's life, she makes an astonishing discovery: he's not the man he says he is--not even close. Now, Laurie begins to puzzle together three decades of lies and the splintered person that resulted from them--herself.

  3. Hmmmm I'm thinking I would like to be a superhero. I'm a little obsessed with Captain America. I also think I would look dashing in a cape.

  4. This looks like an interesting book.

    Does living in a different time, as a favorite character of mine, count? If it does, then I would love to experience life as my favorite character.

    If it does not count, then I would love to experience life as a dedicated athlete...cycling.


  5. I always wanted to be a rock star so that's what my alter ego would be.
