Why is this getting such high rating? Why is it that Jojo Moyes is super popular & everyone wants to read & buy all of her books? Well because she made me cry with her beautiful writing & touching story.
This was my first book by Moyes & I didn't really know what to expect. But right when I read first chapter, I knew I would be hooked. You have your unique but somewhat regular family. Jess is a single mother with two kids, her ex husband left 2 years ago and she's trying to meet ends. Her daughter Tanzie is brilliant! She gets offered a scholarship into private school but there is still a charge that needs to be paid off. When Jess tries to take her to Olympiad in hopes that the winnings could cover the tuition, Jess ends up going on a roadtrip with Ed, an attractive stranger who steals her heart.
Now that I'm trying to write this review, I'm already missing Jess and her children. I thought it was genius to have the book written from everyone's POVs because it definitely made me connect with everyone more. I loved everyone. Jess, Ed, NORMAN!, Nicky, Tanzie. EVerything about this book made me happy. Their conversations were funny, thoughtful, and Jess's optimism wasn't over the top. Typically I don't like books are that too sweet but Jess got some wittiness to her & Ed definitely had his flaws that made me love him even more.
Jojo Moyes. Thank you.
Thank you for being so talented & making me sob uncontrollably.
