Loved it

Loved all these characters. Great book. Fast read!

S. Merrell ,

Slow Start, weak characters, left hanging

Before this book, I read Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow by Zevin and it was absolutely amazing. The characters were intriguing and vivid. The themes strong. And satisfying to read from beginning to end. This book not so much. I almost gave up on it. The characters aren’t flat, but lack strong depth. I also personally see an unresolved “cliff hanger” ending as “easy”. Wrapping up an ending is hard to do well, but ending it without the results of the election, aftermath, and what’s next is something I personally do not like. I also felt like when speaking of female politicians, it leaves out a key piece. A big reason for it being hard for women to run for office and their being fewer females in leadership positions is our nation’s child care crisis. And how hard it is to be a working mother. And that is never mentioned despite mothers being throughout the book.
