So, what qualifies a book as a great book? First, is well-defined and likeable characters. Check! A situation that you can relate to. Check! Conflict, internal and external. Check! Suspense and mystery as to where the story is going and how fast it is getting there. Check! Surprise when things begin to tie together and make sense. Check! Hardship, struggle, perseverance, and you can’t leave out love. Check! Realism... everything doesn’t turn out for the best, but as in real life, things turn out as a mix of good and bad. Check! The author teaches you a few things. Check! And finally, the author can bring tears to your eyes. Check!
Flipping is a story of two families. JonSun, a farm boy, and SuAnn, from the upper class, fall in love and come to America to make a life for themselves. They have one son, Wynson. The McMeri family have a daughter Christa and a step-daughter Jadelynn. Wynson, Christa, and Jadelynn become best friends. Christa is a gymnast. I won’t spoil the story by going further. This is a heart-warming and well-written story. You’ll love it. Pick up your copy today. FYI, I found three errors, but nothing to seriously detract from my enjoyment of the story. In fact, I couldn’t put the book down, especially after the midway point. I had to see how everything was going to turn out.
Love conquers all - or so we're told - but in this story, it has an uphill battle to fight. JonSun and SuAnn must overcome societal hurdles if they are to be united. Two decades later, Wynson and Christa have even more with which to contend, as disability, the spectre of future illness and parental disapproval threaten to keep them apart. The two romances are beautifully told, with just the right amount of tension and "will they/won't they" to keep the reader intrigued.
FLIPPING has the style and substance to make it an easy five-star review for me. Its plot, characterisation and pace are consummate, its style polished and smooth. On a personal note, as the father of a severely autistic son, I commend the author on her sensitivity and insight as regards the various difficulties Christa experiences. Highly recommended reading.
