I just returned from a vacation where the weather was cool, rainy and better suited for inside activities, like reading. Luckily, I had downloaded the new JoJo Moyes novel, One Plus One. I am a big fan of all her novels, especially Me Before You, and had very much anticipated this one.
This new book tells the story of Jess, a single mother who struggles with making ends meet and protecting her two quirky children from the neighborhood bullies. She throws caution to the wind and embarks on a cross country journey filled with hilarity, a bit romance and ultimately disappointment and sadness. The story is quite moving and the characters are vulnerable, learning to rely on each other throughout the course of their trip.
I read this book over 3 days and was unable to stop reading, until I finished it one night. And, like any good book, was sad when I did finish it. If you are looking for a good summer book to read on vacation, or next to the pool, this is the perfect choice.
Have a wonderful weekend!
