I really loved this. I needed a break from all the doom and gloom in the books I usually favor and this was perfect. I laughed out loud several times and had a hard time putting it down. I cried too. You really get to know the characters and feel for them. Even though I'm getting to the age where I roll my eyes at some things the teenagers in the books do! Lizzie is the mother to what she accurately states Americans call "a blended family". She has a teenage daughter, Cassie, and a young boy called Connor. Having divorced her first husband, she found a man named Simon who has a teenage girl of his own, only slightly older than Cassie named Maisy. This book portrays the tremulous relationships between teenagers and their parents... the slammed doors, stress, fights, and unappreciative children... along with the loving moments that make the whole thing worthwhile. Lizzie soaks in the sweet, uncomplicated love and affection she gets from Connor while knowing that when his teenage years hit, he's likely to be as much trouble as the young ladies of the house. It's very honest from the first line of the book. They're not perfect and they don't pretend to be. When tragedy strikes the family, it could bring them closer and solidly their relationships with each other or tear them apart. You have to appreciate what you have... because you won't have it forever. This book is a really emotional, enjoyable story and I'm glad I had the opportunity to read it. I received a copy of this book from the author and Booklover Catlady Publicity in exchange for my honest review, thank you!
