Well, I just loved this adorable book! The characters are so fantastic, and they just steal the show!

Josie is a wonderful person, and she’s been crapped on a bit with life, but when she bumps into two friends from high school, her life takes on a new trajectory. Pregnant, getting divorced, and being nudged out of her parents’ house, an offer to move in with Ben and Kevin. These two goofballs make life so fun. I loved having them in the story. They are well-meaning, big hearted, and loving friends, and watching their relationship with Josie grow was wonderful.

I loved Josie’s exploration of what she wants in life. I think this was a beautiful story, and it created realistic characters that a reader will love instantly.

I would highly recommend this one for anyone who enjoys stories of personal growth, found family, and making one’s own way in life.
