I enjoyed this memoir. This is actually the second time I have read this kind of book this year. The first book was more on the gory side where this one was more thoughtful. I liked hearing his thoughts on being a part of a new profes

My rating is probably closer to 4.5 stars. I really liked this one and it left me with a big old happy grin in the end. At the start of the story, we see Lydia at her low point which Jonas witnessed. Jonas was socially inept which I think added to hi ...more

This was cute. Pretty predictable but still cute. For some reason, I kept imagining this story as a made for TV movie the whole time I read it. It just had that kind of feel to it. The kids were cute. Carol was a little too much Christmas spirit but ...more

I struggled with this book from the very start but kept pushing myself to read just a bit more until the story had a chance to grab me. Unfortunately, after reading more than half the book I am still finding it a struggle so it is time to gi

This was a really well done short story. I was completely drawn into the story from the start and I was captivated until the very end. I thought that the main character was very well developed, especially for such a short piece. I felt his heartbreak ...more
