Turns out one of the New York Times’s readers has caught a number of passages that appear to have been lifted from a book called “Can You Keep A Secret?” by Sophie Kinsella. There are fewer of them, this time: only three. But still…
My first thought was, “How many more books is this going to turn out to be a mashup of?”…and the second was, “I bet that poor kid’s become sorry this book ever saw the light of day.”
