Another good read by BF,
This review is from: Skinnydipping: A Novel (Hardcover)
"Skinnydipping," Frankel takes the advice "write what you know" seriously with a thinly veiled protagonist who closely resembles herself. The story mirrors Frankel's own journey. Her affable doppelganger will likely amuse and inspire female fans. You cannot help but root for imperfect Faith. She trusts the wrong people and makes bad decisions - but learns from her mistakes and continues to believe in herself.

Look it up: "In fiction and folklore, a doppelgänger (German "double walker") is a paranormal double of a living person, typically representing evil or misfortune. In modern vernacular, the word has come to refer to any double or look-alike of a person."
Today it is WIDELY used in the world of apps and the World Wide Web. Simply put, it's the hippest, most up-to-date version of the term "alter ego."

Thank you Michelaneous. Great definition. You are a good writer. I can't keep up with the new world. You sound like you could be the Michelangenius of our time and I am not joking! Thank you.

Wow, THANKS Piano lover. What a great endorsement quote! :) May I use it on my website? (www.michelecozzens.com)
P.S. I am the mother of teenagers, which makes it a little easer to "keep up with the new world."

Did your teenagers tell you about plagiarism?
