Overview

Raven Middlefield is on her way home to celebrate Christmas with her family for the first time in years when she accidentally foils an armed robbery attempt. The local newspaper runs the story first: "Hometown Girl Does Good." When the robber is connected to an interstate crime spree, the story goes national, and everything in Raven’s life gets caught in the resulting undertow. Fish Stories explores the lives of ordinary people who find themselves in extraordinary situations. It is a story about homecomings, and the baggage that we bring with us.

We're born, we grow up, we spend the next thirty years trying to get over the first twenty. Kathleen H. Nelson captures that baggage from the past very well. She also shows us what the average person's fifteen minutes of fame really looks like. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

How delightful to read this story and see the better aspects of stressed personalities emerge! There is a little bit of this heroine in all of us, as we struggle with the 'what if's' and 'maybe's' of our growing-up years, all the while trying to reconcile how we THOUGHT we were perceived with how we actually are...if we are lucky, we realize much of the pressure is self-inflicted! There is much here about human quirks and insecurities, while keeping it fun reading, thoroughly enjoyable!
