I started and finished the book in one day – that’s how awesome it is. It was recommended to me by my husband who read it a little while ago and was really impressed.
I won’t reveal too much of the plot but the book begins with an idyllic scene – Jason Dessen is preparing dinner for his wife and their teenage son. They seem happy, however, Jason knows that at the same time his old college friend is in a nearby bar celebrating. Celebrating winning an award for his work, celebrating further funding, celebrating all the things Jason thought were in his future before his wife got unexpectedly pregnant after a few months of dating.
