Doug I just bought this book and I'm going to probably start it beginning of next week. You gave it 5 stars. What did you like about it?

Cassy Hi Doug! It has been so long since I read (actually listened to) this one. I vaguely remember liking that it felt "real". The emotions, the plot, the characters all felt honest. I generally don't go for books that reflect life in the modern day about the middle class, because I frankly find them boring. But this one somehow transcended and became a revelatory "real" rather than a boring "real".

Doug Thanks :)
