"Wife 22" by Melanie Gideon has an irresistible premise. What would happen if the wife in a ho-hum marriage begins answering anonymous questions from a researcher and the questions become more and more personal?
What if the researcher and the wife begin a Facebook friendship which becomes more than a friendship? A flirtation?
It turns out that secretly answering questions about her marriage makes Alice Buckle examine her life, her friends, her husband, and what makes one happy.
While the story starts slowly, the multi-media presentation works well to allow the reader to examine Alice's life from many angles. The reader sees Facebook posts, Google searches, Alice's answer to the survey questions (without knowing what the questions are -- it's a puzzle for the reader) and then reads about Alice's life in both past and present tense.
