A Reese's Book Club Pick and New York Times Bestseller
“Fans of Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine will love The Cactus.” —Red magazine
An unforgettable love story that shows sometimes you have to embrace the unexpected.
Susan Green is like a cactus: you can't get too close. She likes things perfectly ordered and predictable. No surprises. But suddenly confronted with the loss of her mother and the unexpected news that she is about to become a mother herself, Susan’s greatest fear is realized. She is losing control.
Enter Rob, the dubious but well-meaning friend of her lazy brother. As Susan’s due date draws near and her world falls further into a tailspin, Susan finds an unlikely ally in Rob. She might have a chance at finding real love and learning to love herself, if only she can figure out how to let go.
"I found myself laughing out loud." —Reese Witherspoon
I only read the first 5 minutes, but this book is so well written!!!😃
I almost gave up on this book. I am so glad I didn’t as it is a wonderful story. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
I loved this book! It was constantly hilarious and there was even an unexpected twist at the end. I really really loved this book and will likely listen to it again. The narrator was excellent as well.
