Boy meets stripper. Boy marries stripper. Isn’t that every boy’s dream? Okay, maybe not. It wasn’t Daniel Bowman’s, either. But that’s what happened when Daniel, more for a laugh and a bit of an adventure, did that. His Spring Break adventure turns out to be more than he bargained for, although probably not for the reasons you’d guess.
The Worth of Things suffered from insufficient proofing, with too many typos, missing words, homophone errors and such, including calling the “Oriental Blossom,” the name of the club where Daniel met his wife-to-be, the “Orange Blossom” multiple times. Yet even while tripping over these issues I found myself wanting to see where this story went. A crew of twenty-somethings on Spring Break in Florida are going to be prone to trouble. That part was predictable, but how Daniel’s marriage would play out wasn’t, nor was the book’s ending. I won’t call the ending perfect- it definitely wasn’t that- but it was a very strong ending that was both what I expected and not.
