The almost sisters
Leia Birch Briggs is a comic book writer and artist. Her signature characters are Violet and Violence. She is working on an origin story but has writers block. Part of the problem is all the other stuff going on in her life. Her grandmother is suffering from a form of dementia, her step sister's marriage is falling apart, and she is pregnant after a one night stand at a comic con. It sounds a little crazy but hold on, there is more. In an effort to avoid spoilers, I will say this is a modern story of the South, with a little mystery thrown in along with some family dysfunction. The author does a wonderful job with the audio version which I enjoyed immensely.
