Social Suicide By Gemma Halliday
Twittercide: the killing of one human being by another while the victim is in the act of tweeting.Call me crazy, but I figured writing for the Herbert Hoover High Homepage would be a pretty sweet gig. Pad the resume for college applications, get a first look at the gossip column, sPend some time ogling the paper's brooding bad-boy editor, Chase Erikson. But on my first big story, things went . . . a little south. What should have been a normal interview with Sydney Sanders turned into me discovering the homecoming queen?hopeful dead in her pool. Electrocuted while Tweeting. Now, in addition to developing a reputation as HHH's resident body finder, I'm stuck trying to prove that Sydney's death wasn't suicide.I'm starting to long for the days when my biggest worry was whether the cafeteria was serving pizza sticks or Tuesday Tacos. . . .

Three female friends face midlife crises in a no-holds-barred exploration of sex, marriage, and the fragility of life.Holly: Filled with regret for being a stay-at-home mom, she sheds sixty pounds and loses herself in the world of extramarital sex. Will it bring the fulfillment she is searching for?Andrea: A single mom and avowed celibate, she watches her friend Holly?s meltdown with a mixture of concern and contempt. Holly is throwing away what Andrea has spent her whole life searching for?a c

Ommitted relationship with a decent guy. So what if Andrea picks up Holly?s castaway husband?Marissa: She has more than her fair share of challenges?a gay, rebellious teenage son, a terminally ill daughter, and a husband who buries himself in his work rather than face the facts.As one woman?s marriage unravels, another?s rekindles. As one woman?s family comes apart at the seams, another?s reconfigures into something bigger and better. In this story of connections and disconnections, one woman?s up is another one?s down, and all of them will learn the meaning of friendship, betrayal, and forgiveness.Unflinchingly honest, emotionally powerful, surprisingly erotic, Triangles is the ultimate page-turner. Hopkins?s gorgeous, expertly honed poetic verse perfectly captures the inner lives of her characters. Sometimes it happens like that. Sometimes you just get lost.Get lost in the world of Triangles, where the lives of three unforgettable women intersect, and where there are no easy answers
