Are You Sleeping is the type of book that will hook you from the very first page. Barber’s debut novel perfectly captures the frenzy around a notorious murder and it’s easy to see why this book rocketed to the top of the New York Times Bestseller list. The book tells the story of Josie, who has spent her life trying to escape her family. After her father was murdered, all hell broke loose. Her mother joined a cult, and her sister betrayed her in an awful way. She’s spent the past thirteen years trying to get away from her family and is hoping to settle down with Caleb in New York City.

There’s only one problem: she’s lied to Caleb about her entire life story. Everything is going fine until a podcaster decides to start a show about her father’s murder and the show is a hit. Her mother dies, forcing Josie to return home, and confront some things she would rather not. It’s easy to see why this page-turner of a book is being made into a series.
