After Chapter 1, I was hooked! The book pulls you in and you become the main character's biggest advocate. Her success, pain, and hardships become your own. The twists, turns, and suspense keep you addicted to reading the next word.

Kori Maitland is suffering through a breakup, semi unemployment, and homelessness. Although saddened by life's tragic events, Kori finds herself keeping all of the pain bottled up inside of her. One day she finally decides to trust God to fight her battles, and when she does, she is finally on a journey to get her happiness. Is she ready to deal with Kori, her past, and sort out life and all that it delves out along the way?
30 DAY NOTICE by Kai Mann is a self-journey about love, life, forgiveness and hope. Kori had to recognize that in order to become who she was meant to be, she needed to experience what life was offering, even the heartaches, the setbacks, and the bouts of depression.
When I opened this book, I was not a happy reader. It’s obvious, and I’m just being honest, that while Kai loves the written word, she didn’t seek the guidance of an editor. There is absolutely no timeline, so you never quite know how much time has passed unless the character tells you. There are misspelled words, wrong word usage, tense issues, and wrong or missing punctuation. I also dreaded the fact that the story detailed minute things (ex: I walked to the car, I put the key in the door, I opened the door, I put the key in the ignition.) Then there were parts of the story that were repetitive and contradictory. I had to put the book down. After speaking to one of my book sisters, I was more determined to get back on my reading flow. I picked the book back up and was able to finish it in one sitting. Kai’s testimony, despite the issues mentioned, is compelling. And I was happy to see that throughout each and every battle, she grew and remembered that with God all things were possible.
While I think that 30 DAY NOTICE could be a blessing for young women dealing with issues with their sexuality, depression, self-love, and trying to find themselves, I would highly recommend Kai first seek the assistance of both copy and developmental editors.
