I was not prepared for the wild turns this story takes. The tension made me uncomfortable at points but I couldn't stop reading. All of the characters are given their own story but all of the stories connect to each other and tie together neatly at the end. There were some lingering questions at the end but it was satisfying overall

I found this to be a beautifully written and engrossing novel. It focuses on the slow disintegration of a family (The Hardings) and the fragile bonds that keep families together. All four of the central characters are troubled in some way and Porter does a good job of presenting them realistically. The writing is clear and crisp and easy to read and the plot keeps you hooked. Many novels seem to hit a wall about halfway through but that's just when In Between days gets really interesting. A quick, enjoyable read for those who like family dramas.

Andrew Porter’s In Between Days is about the disintegration of a family after a series of unfortunate events. If I had to pick a genre, I would say that it is adult fiction that could appeal to YA fans, as well (the cover is much more YA’ish than the book itself). Told from alternating perspectives, the story is centered around Chloe, the young twenty-something daughter that is sent home from school for reasons that only come to light later on in the book. Heartbreakingly realistic, the book is not one that reaches far out into the depths of the impossible for its storyline. Unlike most books that center on a family falling apart, the circumstances, struggles, and hardships that each member faces are within the realm of possibility for the average family. While the parents are trying to navigate the waters of their recent divorce, their son, Richard, is going through a typical mid-twenties crisis in regard to his career goals. This is compounded by the fact that Richard and his father have a strained relationship that stemmed from the father’s reaction to Richard coming out. While this added another dimension to the book, I like that the author chose not allow this storyline to take away from the main plot when he could have run off on another tangent. My favorite part of this book was the ending. I don’t want to give anything away, but I will say that it was unexpected and realistic. Granted, the story as a whole is plausible but not likely, and that makes it all the better. If you’re a fan of YA (which I am not), you will love this book. But if you’re a fan of adult fiction, you should give this book a try. Don’t let the YA book cover scare you off!

Suburban dysfunction, well-written and probing.

Fantastic novel. I wasn't sure I would like it at first, but it didn't take long to get sucked into the characters and plot. Lovely writing.

Was very disappointed in this book. It was disjointed, lacked character development and never resolved any of the many different issues it brought up, the homosexual son, the college age daughter and her Indian boyfriend & his relationship with his family, the newly divorced parents, the husbands girlfriend....kept reading hoping for more than a surface picture of each character..finally gave up and ended up not caring about any character in the novel....a complete waste of time!
