People Like Us
By Caro Soles
How well do you know your friends? At a cottage reunion of old university pals, a long-buried secret threatens to crack their perfect lives wide open. Tentacles from the past grasp each of them, until one buckles under the pressure and slides headlong into murder.

People Like Us is a beautifully written, intricate, haunting tale of how a Toronto woman’s seemingly perfect life is completely upended and almost destroyed by sexual secrets involving her close friends and a 19 year old gay street hustler. Nothing is at it appears to be in this profoundly moving coming of age novel. Caro Soles is a mature literary writer who in this subtle and haunting mystery is at the top of her game.” – James Dubro, gay activist, writer for Xtra for 20 years, author of Mob Rule, King of the Mob etc.
