Product Details


“Mind bending and emotional…a taut psychological thriller with a twisted question at its core: Would you be willing to lose a life you love in order to gain something you thought was lost forever?”
Julie Clark, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Flight

“The definition of unputdownable…This is one of the most innovative thrillers I’ve read in a long, long time.”
Samantha Downing, USA Today bestselling author of My Lovely Wife

“Breathtaking, inventive, and irresistible… Who hasn’t wondered what alternate versions of their lives might look like?…As relatable as it is suspenseful, cleverly exploring adulthood, identity, and shifting realities. A knockout debut.”
Margarita Montimore, USA Today bestselling author of Oona Out of Order

“Perhaps this book’s greatest pleasure—and there are many to choose from—is the way Jeng leads the reader down one road, then makes a sharp right turn and heads off in a new direction. The Other Me is not what it seems to be, and Kelly’s story is not going to end where you think it will. This is Jeng’s first novel, and it immediately establishes her as a writer to watch very closely.”

“Jeng’s novel intricately weaves together two worlds and makes the reader question throughout whether the narrator is a victim of her own mind or something more sinister. In her premiere novel, Jeng builds a unique narrative, complete with compelling characters and continued suspense at every turn. The Other Me is not one to be missed and will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end.”
Criminal Element

“Like both Black Mirror and Russian Doll, Sarah Zachrich Jeng’s The Other Me resists categorization, blending the impossible with the probable with the downright plausible.”

“Both a suspenseful psychological thriller and an astute reinvention of the time travel narrative.”

Black Mirror-esque rabbit hole.”

“Well written and engaging…Recommended for fans of Blake Crouch and anyone interested in the concept of alternative lives.”
Mystery & Suspense Magazine

The Other Me is an electrifying sci-fi thriller. It’s Sliding Doors mixed with quite a bit of toxic masculinity, constantly grappling with ideas like fate vs. free will as well as woulds vs. coulds vs. shoulds.”

“Jeng’s debut is a page-turner with well-developed characters… A good pick for fans of modern women’s fiction about controlling one’s destiny.”
Library Journal

“Convincing alternate-universe mechanics and a subtle lesson in the perils of manipulating other people to get what we want raise the bar in this fun, well-paced story. An enjoyable adventure with a likable heroine in search of the life she really wants.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Satisfyingly intricate and genuinely innovative.”
Eliza Jane Brazier, author of If I Disappear

“An ingenious twist on the domestic thriller…This assured, compelling debut will leave you nostalgic for all the lives you’ve never lived.”
—Layne Fargo, author of They Never Learn

“Clever and unique.”
Thoughts From a Page

“[B]lends science fiction and thrills.”
