I think we can all relate to the idea of feeling somewhat trapped in our lives, and most of us still don't do anything about it. But with the help of her best friend, Willa's blasting out of her rut. (It's not entirely Willa's idea or desire to do so.)
I love so much about this book---I love Willa so much and her entire family and Theo (the ex-boyfriend who finds her on Facebook) and I really, really love her nephew Nicky. These people felt absolutely real and I miss them very much.
This is one of those books that has the potential to change your life because if this doesn't give you the desire to change your life---quit your job, call that crush, move from the apartment you're starting to hate---nothing ever will.
Willa must become the champion of her own destiny when an old flame resurfaces on Facebook and she’s lured into a challenging new endeavor courtesy of her best friend. Will she find the guts, the gumption—nay, THE BALLS!—to navigate her own life or will old habits die hard? Scotch’s novel takes us on a hilarious and all-too familiar ride. You will find yourself laughing out loud at the exchanges between Willa and her overzealous, Xanax-addicted sister, Raina, and her prodigal younger brother/yogi to the stars, Ollie! Scotch’s novel sparkles—clever, well written, and the perfect choice for next month’s book club.
Willa is the kind of main character I enjoy. She appears to have certain things that make her Willa Chandler-Golden, like having a famous author for a father. But her emotional turmoil and mind beset with seemingly endless questions about her future mirror the way many of us feel. Willa instantly invites the reader in, showing us all of her good and not-so-good qualities to put us at ease. Scotch has written Willa like she’s a friend – relatable, and easy to converse and commiserate with – and it succeeds in getting the reader to connect to The Theory of Opposites.
Willa is joined by a whole ensemble – her family (father, mother, sister, brother), her husband, her best friend Vanessa, her ex, her nephew Nicky, to name a few. Each secondary character had a distinct characteristic that, while borderline stereotypical at times, helped keep them memorable as I read. While these characters aren’t fully fleshed out, readers will learn what roles they play in Willa’s life and how that affects her journey in The Theory of Opposites.
And really, it’s Willa’s journey that made The Theory of Opposites work so well. She’s lived a life where she just goes where the universe wills her, good or bad. It’s been steady, but it’s also meant that she’s found herself stuck in routine.Read more ›
