Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Between You And Me

Logan has lived with a hole in her heart as big as Texas ever since she and her cousin Kelsey were separated as girls. Ugly family business and a drive to keep secrets from becoming public knowledge are the catalyst. While Kelsey was pushed into childhood fame, Logan has been trying to find her path oh her own without an inkling of understanding as to why she lost her best friend. The blame falls on Kelsey's parents who saw dollar signs behind Logan's talent and pushed her towards the bright lights of stardom.

When Kelsey fires her assistant an opportunity opens up for the cousins to reunite. It happens through Kelsey's demanding work schedule and glamorous lifestyle. What comes out, is the pain both girls have lived with as Kelsey's mom refused to see the damage her husband's alcoholism has caused.

The families fell out after the girls were subjected to one of Logan's dads drunken rages. He had abused her mom physically and came after Logan shoving her roughly into a bathroom wall after the girls hid inside scared of what he might do to them. His out of control behavior caused adult trauma for Logan and Kelsey.

Both women suffer and make poor choices with intimacy and men as a result. After months of being on the road during Kelsey's latest concert tours the cousins have a heart-to-heart revealing what they remember about the night years ago and what went down in the bathroom.

Kelsey lives a diva's lifestyle but underneath the designer outfits and MAC makeup the dam is about to break. Her parents control her life (they keep their eyes on her money) and work together have her proven unfit as a mother in efforts to gain custody of her un-born daughter so they can control her in the same way.

When baby Jessie is born Kelsey sees how evil her parents can be. Instead of finding Logan a rehab facility so she can dry out, they involve social services and the a mental facility.

Kelsey will not be sent away this time, she is a grown woman. She stands by Logan and lets her aunt and uncle know just what she thinks about their manipulation and dysfunction.

Logan's mom pens her a note apologizing for no talking with her about what happened and the decision to keep the girls apart. The emotional scarring might have a chance to heal on some levels now that everything is out in the open.

Logan and Kelsey prove to themselves and their parents that you cannot keep cousins who closer than some sisters apart when love is genuine.
Best part of story, including ending: I hated how Kelsey's parents manipulated her.

Best scene in story: My favorite scene was when Logan spoke up to her aunt and uncle.

Opinion about the main character: I liked Logan for having the courage to help her cousin.
