Wow. This one was emotional. I hesitated on the book because I read the preview and could see it would be a heavy story, but after hating the last three I listened to, I finally landed on this one. I'm glad I did. It was adult...something a lot of books have been lacking, and it was deeply heartbreaking and beautiful. At 32, finding a great story that doesn't revolve around college age is getting more difficult, and its hard to get into the mind set.. here, you're dealing with loss and pain that play on your biggest fears. The author nailed it, there were eye roll moments, but at the same time they were fairly relatable. I formed an emotional bond to the characters and even found myself so sad I was throwing it aside only to pick it right back up because I had to know what was next. Brian Pallino was the other reason I finally decided on this one, he and Erin Mallon both are fantastic. Great read, fantastic listen, but prepare yourself to feel the emotions.

I absolutely adored this book! The author manages to provoke so many feelings from the reader: angst, sadness, anger, humor, lust etc. Faye was the perfect sidekick/best friend and I couldn't wait to hear what would come out of her mouth next. It's difficult to describe my one disappointment with this book without spoiling the climax for future readers. Let's just say that the "plot twist" meant to cause drama towards the end of the book is completely unbelievable, in my humble opinion. The rest of the story was so great though, it was easy to overlook that one issue that nagged at me a little. I'll definitely be looking for more works by this author!
