Perfect ** I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review** After finishing reading Full Share, I was tempted to do something I had never done before: write a one-word review. I thought better of it but decided to use the word as the review title because that’s what the book is. Just perfect. This wasn’t my first time under Eliza Freed’s spell so I knew I was in for a treat. She smashed all my expectations in the best way possible. I’ll use her own words to summarize the story, “I looked around my porch. Three months ago it had been this tiny, dark space that was stifling hot and void of any privacy. Now I realized it was a doorway to my soul that opened the minute I walked through it”. Nora says these words towards the end of the book and they give you a pretty good idea of what you’ll find in the book. Although it’s labeled as New Adult, it doesn’t follow the rules of the genre to the dot. Thankfully, I might add. It refreshingly dives into complex issues and makes you think just as a ‘doorway to one’s soul’ should do. I mean you don’t just decide to reevaluate your stagnated ways without a little pushing and shoving in that direction. Sometimes you need a little help from your friends and a great deal of personal loss to do it. But that’s life. And life is what Full Share is about. That’s why it’s filled with tons of people, good times, laughter, pain, and heartache. Eliza also did a great job writing so many multifaceted characters. At first, I thought it wouldn’t work but she made it work. They made me smile, roll my eyes, and cry just like I do when I’m hanging out with my real friends. That’s because they are so realistic. You feel like you know them; that you could go out and have a beer with them. They made me feel at home in their beach house. I could go on and on about how awesome Full Share is but I won’t waste any more of your time making you read an endless summary of it when you could be spending it starting to read the real deal. Word of advice though. Don’t start it if it’s late at night and you need to get up early the next day. You will be late for your appointment because I’m sure you won’t put the book down.

I first became a fan of Freed after reading The Devil’s Playground. She has an amazing way with words, drawing you in and holding you captive till the very end. This book was everything I have come to expect from her, and so much more. With intriguing, complex characters, plenty of emotion and a beautiful story that left me in awe, at the same time making me feel complete in a way I haven’t before. Nora was a sweet girl, but it was obvious that her introvert ways were courtesy of mother dearest. She had the choice between living with a few strangers for a few days over the summer, or having to face her mother and the memories that fuel her dislike for the woman who gave birth to her – of course she’d rather go with the strangers. I doubt she realized just how much of an impact those people would have on her. They were a mixed bag of fun, feisty, caring, weird and just plain crazy, and this made them all the more endearing. Being a part of the Full Share team, Nora learned to be brave, to enjoy life – to actually live, instead of only existing. Tank played a large part in her change, as did Jack, but I think each and every one of the characters in this story had a lesson to teach, while at the same time discovering something knew about themselves. They were equal parts of a puzzle and the second one piece disappeared, they were incomplete, searching for a way to breathe. It was beautiful to behold, but heartrending as well. This story was an emotional reminder of just how short life can be, how precious it is, and how much we shouldn’t take people for granted. We need to enjoy our time together, and we need to truly live and enjoy each day as it comes.

“Life is deep, Nora. Dive in.” “You fit perfectly with me. You’re so tiny.” “Don’t break me.” “I won’t, Nora Hargrove.” Full Share is my first book by Eliza Freed and definitely won’t be my last. This story is well written and captivating. It sucks you in from the very first page and has you dying to know what will happen next. Full Share follows Nora on her quest of life. Traumatized by her mother at a young age, Nora has avoided men and all types of relationships. She has a terrible job that’s going nowhere fast and is content to live and just be alone. In an attempt to seek even more solitude, Nora finds herself spending her free time in a severely overcrowded beach rental. That’s leaving her with nowhere to run and nowhere to hide. But, this experience might just be with Nora needs to finally start living her life. Full Share will take you on one crazy emotional journey. The characters are a lot of fun and so easy to connect with and relate to. They have a very real feel to them, making you want to know more about them and their stories. Full Share will make you laugh at times, and leave you shaking your head at others. This story does deal with some complex issues, but they are handled really well. Full Share is not just a love story. It is a story of finding yourself again. It’s a story of learning to move on and not let your past define you. It’s a story about taking risks and falling in love.
