A well written story that I stayed up later than I should have to finish reading! The best part is the underlying story that gives a deeper meaning to the whole novel. I won't give away the ending though! You'll have to find out what this important message is for yourself.
***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW*** Once by M.S. Kaye is a New Adult Contemporary Story about two people spending a day off their real lives on a train. Jonathan and Rebecca keep seeming to run into each other on the train, until they meet up once too many times, and the encounter changes their lives. I picked this up, and 6 hours later, lay my reader down while wiping my tears for the umpteenth time, smiling, and unable to wait for more of the story. Solid 5-star read. ***Review has been done in conjunction with Nerd Girl Official.
I realize editors aren't supposed to review the books they work on, but when a book makes you sob during both the first and second rounds of editing, and you have very little work to do on it, you know you're working on a winner. I feel like I'll be stealing my pay on this one, although I'll still take it! The only problem was, I worked on "Once" while doing volunteer work at the VA Hospital, and while I was sobbing, a veteran needed my help. I could barely speak to the poor man! I managed to stammer, "G-good b-book. B-be with y-you in a m-minute," as I wiped my eyes on a tissue. Don't take my word for it; I'm prejudiced. Buy the book and see for yourself.
