Author: Lisa Genova
Genre: Fiction, Standalone
Personal Rating: 3/5 (just okay)
Yearly Count: 93
Two women, both with sadness harboring in their hearts, cross paths on Nantucket Island and build a mutually beneficial friendship.
I love Genova's writing style, but I didn't love this story. It was too chick-lit for me and didn't grab at my heartstrings like Still Alice (one of my all-time favorite books). The plot felt like she was trying too hard to be fancy or creative.
I appreciate the attention this will bring to helping people understand what family members and individuals with Autism may experience, but ultimately, I thought it was just okay.
