Book Review: The Perfect Daughter by T.J. Morgan

I find dissociative identity disorder fascinating to read about. The ability of the mind to protect itself by splintering into personality fragments is a mind-boggling feat, and while stories that address this happening are always painful to read because only horrific trauma produces this result, they also offer compelling glimpses into how our minds work.

I must confess, I did not see the big reveal coming. It struck me at first as a little unlikely, but it grew on me over time. It made for a very dramatic finish, but in hindsight that seemed to fit with the overall tone of the rest of the book in a way that I ultimately think worked.

The interplay between the characters and the family dynamics were interesting to watch unravel. At times they felt a little overblown and overly dramatic, but that’s par for the course in tale with this much trauma. I found the writing engaging and easy to follow, and watching the many faces of Eve (pun intended) roll across the pages made for a very entertaining and engaging read…

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for my obligation-free review copy.
