This review is from: Megan's Way (Paperback)
I picked up Megan's Way by Melissa Foster on the recommendation of a friend. Although this is not the type of book I usually read, I decided to give it a try. Overall I enjoyed the story about the relationship between a single mother who is stricken with cancer and her teenage daughter. I think there was just enough teen-angst and frustration on both sides to make the story real. Although I found parts of the book a little harder to swallow, the thing that stuck with me from Megan's Way was the theme of "no matter how well you know someone, you can't really know them". The book explores both sides of friendships, the love, joy and caring that they bring, but also what we hide to protect those friendships. Everyone in this story has a secret they are keeping for the sake of their friendships and I found it sad that none of them was willing or able to share these secrets, even with their "best" friends. Overall, I enjoyed the book, despite the references to mysticism, which I am not really interested in. The relationships between the characters is what makes this book worth reading.
