The Last Time I Saw You

Fun read. The characters were a bit repetitive and stretched believability within the context of the story, but the plot twist was unexpected and entertaining.

This book has two timelines. One takes place in Bangkok in 1972, where Genevieve and Robert Preston and their three children are living while Robert is there for a special assignment with work. One day, eight year old Philip Preston goes missing, and was never found. The second timeline is in 2019 in Washington D.C. Laura Preston, the younger Preston daughter, is contacted by someone claiming to be Phlip. Bea, the older daughter, is convinced it is a scam, but after a skype call with him, Laura is convinced of his identity. She sets off for Thailand hoping to get answers to where he has been all this time, and why he hasn't contacted them before now, if he really is who he claims to be. This book was SO good. I didn't want to put it down. It was the the perfect combination of suspense, soap opera drama among the husbands and wives over in Bangkok, and just really good fiction. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to anyone with a love for a good fiction book.

I enjoyed the short stories. The only problem I ran into was the word choices in the title story seemed a bit off considering the topic, but it was still a good read.

This story is told in the alternating voices of Amy, her husband, and her daughter. Amy is a breast cancer survivor who, on the day she got her cancer diagnosis, found divorce papers that her husband was having drawn up. Amy's husband, Officer Paul Bergstrom, is battling PTSD because he never really dealt with and recovered from clearing bodies from the Oklahoma City Bombing. Since then, his job as a police officer frequently brings those old memories to the surface. His only coping mechanism has been to deaden his feelings, good and bad, in order to survive. Their daughter Carly has been spiraling ever since her mother got the cancer diagnosis, and now that she has just finished high school, her parents are deperate for her to get her life back on track before it is too late. This is a very emotional read. It is very well-written. It is a very heartbreaking novel, but I felt like it almost threw in too many deep subjects. It almost overpowered the novel. ( On top of the cancer disgnosis and Paul's PTSD, Amy's father had alzheimer's). Overall, this was a good but depressing novel.

The Future Is Yours

This modern day cautionary tale is told through emails, texts, transcripts, and blog posts. You see the "behind the scenes" so-to-speak version of story, and how the rise to fame comes with its own costs of greed and jealousy. At times I felt the story was a little slow (especially the transcripts), but it had a great surprise ending, and overall was unique and enjoyable.

Peyton has it all - a career she loves as an anchor on a popular morning show, a husband who loves her, and an amazing daughter who is headed to Princeton in the fall. Everything is perfect until the day a story about a college admissions scandal breaks, and she sees her husband being led out of their apartment building in handcuffs. Peyton's sister Skye also seems to have it all - an adoring husband, a beautiful adoped daughter, and she is working on a special project to help girls from low-income families. The only problem is, Skye is hiding a secret that just keeps building, and she doesn't know what to do about it. Then, when Peyton's life implodes, the repercusions affect not only Peyton and her family, but Skye and her family as well. I loved this book. I didn't want to put it down. I kept rooting for Skye and for Peyton's daughter Max, who was just an innocent victim in all of this. This is a very timely novel. It did have a lot of humor, though, despite the serious subject matter. I highly recommend this one!

I loved this sequel to Blue!

The Quest For Cosmic Justice
by Thomas Sowell

This is a great read that gets to the point without needing too much of a background in the topic. Of course it encourages or entices the reader to look into mentioned events on their own. It provides a logical counter-point to the views and opinions being pushed out in mainstream media currently.

Sharon Creech is a great author. I love stories that involve young people; depicting certain life events and the many choices they make to navigate them.
