    When Irene America discovers that her husband, Gil, has been reading her diary, she begins a secret Blue Notebook, stashed securely in a safe deposit box. There she records the truth about her life and her marriage, while turning her Red Diary—hidden where Gil will find it—into a manipulative farce.

    Maxine says: "Enjoyed it until the ending"
    "Well written but hard to read because of subject"

    Where does Shadow Tag rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Not one of my favorites


    Would you recommend Shadow Tag to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, because it is a very depressing book.

    Excelletn


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The part where she goes out to save the husband she supposedly hates!!


    Any additional comments?

    It is beautifully written but such a difficult situation to feel the characters pain because they are so twisted in their thoughts
