“Hilarious and full of heartwarming, familial honesty, Molly's latest was a joy to read.” (Jamie Ford, New York Times bestselling author of THE HOTEL ON THE CORNER OF BITTER AND SWEET)
“Molly Campbell writes with such compassion, wit, and humor that you can't help but fall in love with Beck and, of course, the spunky, intuitive, brilliant Bob. Crossing the Street is completely heart-wrenching with an ending that will make you ugly-cry.” (Katie Moretti, New York Times bestselling author of THE BINDS THAT TIE)
“A gem of a novel about being open to life and its possibilities when you just don't wanna. Campbell serves up the mysteries of yearning, envy, and female desire with a perfect side of tenderness and wit.” (Karen Karbo, award-winning author of the New York Times Notable Book THE DIAMOND LANE)
“Campbell writes with a seasoned, tender wit. Moments that could feel heavy or serious are infused with comedic elements that keep elevating the story. She balances deep emotions with some very funny lines. This gifted humorist has won two Erma Bombeck Writing Awards. Crossing the Street is an ideal summer read.” (Dayton Daily News)

There is so much to love about Crossing the Street that I'm going to just focus on what I consider the main points.
Characters: Oh my gosh, they just like real people and I'd bet all of us know some people like the folks in this novel. Diana, Beck and their sibling rivalry, the drama queen mother - "I have skin cancer so please make up with your sister!" Okay, I paraphrased, but seriously, does that qualify for drama queen of the day or what? Bob, I just flat out loved Bob and wanted to hug her every other sentence! Theo - I married a Theo, well except for the fashion sense and my heart did pop like popcorn, so he was obviously the one.
Humor and love: There were so many funny parts in this book and considering the lives these people lead, I wasn't expecting that. I lost track of how often I just flat out laughed out loud. My husband even asked me what was so funny, but of course, it was a "there" kind of thing so he didn't get it. There is so much love in this book that I felt good all day!
Major and timely issues addressed: There were some very timely (and major) issues addressed in this book, but they were handled so well and bundled seamlessly into the story that it all felt very natural. It was absolutely well done and I applaud the author for the kindness and consideration always shown toward Rowena.
This book is a good fit for almost anyone I'd think. If you like family drama, books brimming with love for your neighbors, literary fiction, drama or a book with some romance, but not as the main focus, you will enjoy Crossing The Street. Check it out today!
Ms. Campbell can we have a sequel please? Sooner rather than later? I want to find out what everyone is doing! I miss these characters.
I do recommend it to anyone who has a less-than-perfect life. And isn't that all of us?
The characters are relatable. The issues addressed are real. It is life as many know life. Real people. Real issues.
Get it. Read it. I'm glad I did.
