Melissa's writing flows effortlessly and she made me fall in love with her characters who were very much alive on the pages. The pages turned quickly wanting to find out the secrets they each held.
I lost my mom to cancer almost 20 years ago and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't ache to talk to her. There was so much in this book that was actually healing for me after all these years.
I am so glad that I found a new author to add to my short list of favorites.
Wonderful account of the relationships among a group of friends, and a wonderful reflection about the meaning of being family and of loving and sharing love with others. Powerful story about the power of love and about the ways people develop to deal with the pain of losing loved ones.
The pace of the novel is quite adequate, since it lets the reader know new information little by little, giving you space for trying to guess, although the twists are so unexpected that it is difficult to guess what is going to happen next. The building of suspense is so good that the story keeps you hooked almost from the beginning.
The characters are well depicted and seem quite real. Using a different register for Olivia, so she sounds like a real teenager.
If I have to find a flaw to this enjoyable and emotional book is that sometimes I found some vocabulary a bit repetitive. We love synonyms!
Megan has cancer that has returned with metastasis throughout her body.Continuing aggressive treatment is futile. She is torn because she has a fourteen year old daughter to stick around for. But she believes the kinder thing would be to spare her and her close friends the agony of watching her decline.But she has trouble telling them the truth of the matter.
Holly,Jack and Peter, Megan's close friends are loathe to let her go. And they each carry a secret. After Megan passes they each experience an emotional quandary in regard to their secret.
Megan's daughter, Olivia. She and her Mom have been so close. And now there seem to be things that Megan kept from her. As a young teenager she reacts with anger alternating with despair.I feel that Olivia"s character was the most well written and best developed.
Megan sticks around after her death to help Olivia come to terms with her death. She manifests herself in clouds and by her signature scent. This is comforting and confusing to Olivia.
Overall, this was an ok read. And I kept reminding myself that this was a debut work. It probably would have been better marketed as a teen read. Adults have trouble suspending belief with glaring implausibilities in regard to cancer and baby switching.
