    [synopsis] => A fresh take on classic characters, Daisy gives readers insight into Daisy Buchanan's viewpoint of the events of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby. While simultaneously remaining true to the original and adding new information, Sternberg weaves Daisy's perspective and Nick Carraway's account together, correcting what Daisy knows is inaccurate from her cousin's novel. Sternburg pulls readers in from the first page, and while the outcome of Daisy and Gatsby's affair is universally known, readers still cannot help but root for the pair.            
	As the novel progresses, the tension in Daisy's love life heightens the stakes, and while it's easy to want to see Daisy and Jay make it work, the reader can also feel Daisy's ambiguous feelings about leaving her husband for Gatsby. As the story climaxes, readers are left feeling as confused as Daisy is in regard to the decisions she needs to make. While there are noticeable changes to the overall story-it is a different perspective, after all-Daisy provides readers of romantic and/or feminist fiction and fans of The Great Gatsby alike with a satisfying story that is faithful to the original, yet unique in its own right.  Libby Sternberg is an Edgar finalist, a Launchpad Prose Top 50 finalist, and a BookLife quarter-finalist twice. She writes historical fiction, women's fiction, and more under the names Libby Sternberg and Libby Malin, and one of her romantic comedies was bought for film. Her other retelling of a classic story-a Jane-Eyre reiteration titled "Sloane Hall"-was one of only 14 books highlighted in the Huffington Post on the 200th anniversary of Charlotte Bronte's birth. A reimagining of "The Great Gatsby" story from Daisy Buchanan's point of view "The thoughts and desires of Daisy Buchanan come to the fore in this well imagined novel. This is more than a retelling of the classic from a switch in point of view. The life of a pampered and beautiful yet deeply unhappy young married woman shows the dark side of the Jazz Age in a fresh and provocative telling, marked by some real surprises." "The author writes with a poised composure that reads like a continuation of Fitzgerald's prose... A delightful portrayal of a female character claiming the story as her own, repossessing her own voice." "Daisy gives needed dimensions to the controversial Great Gatsby character, turning her from a beautiful fool into a strong woman with a life of her own."
