A “Jewel” of a Story
Hats off to Colleen Oakley for writing a narrative that made me wish to learn even once I had completely no time to take action. This novel is certainly one of the crucial entertaining tales I’ve learn within the final 12 months. I like the way in which that the characters are developed each individually and thru the relationships between them. As soon as the plot took off, I didn’t wish to put it down and was unhappy when it was over. After ending the story, I felt as if I had concurrently predicted the ending and gotten it virtually completely fallacious. Possibly certainly one of my favourite issues in regards to the e book is my incapability to categorise it in anyone class. Along with some actually nice strains, the novel is a good mixture of snarky banter and sentimentality that may be a success in any e book membership. I’ll undoubtedly be studying Oakley’s different novels!
Ageless Friendships and Household Secrets and techniques
What an unexpectedly fulfilling e book! At first look, you won’t take into account this novel for a e book group. I’ll select this for my group. There are lots of themes to debate together with household secrets and techniques and what to share or not share; friendships between younger adults and mature adults; and what occurs if you find yourself actually there for somebody.

The e book takes a sudden flip when Louise wakes up Tanner in the course of the night time saying that they need to depart city instantly. The 2 of them embark on a madcap drive throughout the nation with Louise not giving Tanner a lot perception into what she is doing. Simply who’s Louise and why is she fleeing? And why is Tanner agreeing to assist her?
There was a shock twist on the finish and certainly one of my favourite strains comes from August and the phrase homophone. I like a sensible character who is aware of vocabulary!
I actually loved the unlikely pairing of those two characters and their highway adventures. I feel this is able to make a wonderful e book membership e book that may generate numerous discussions.

Elizabeth L. (Salem, OR)
I actually loved this e book. It parallels the film Thelma and Louise however places a recent spin on it. I am not (too) near the ages of both character however thought that the depictions had been age applicable. Nicely written and didn’t have any “take you out of the e book” phrasing/sections that I usually rant to my husband about.

Stuffed with humor and surprises galore, this was a type of books I could not put down. There have been numerous “wow, I did not see that coming!” moments.
