I say this could make a great movie because as I read it I could see different characters almost vividly as to how they would play out on screen. I only gave it 3 stars instead of 5. The reason for that is that maybe there could have been a little more story for some of the other characters in this book.
The book is about a family going through change. Mother, Father, two grown daughters, one in college, one married.
When the youngest daughter, a sophomore in college, learns that her parents are divorcing and it causes her to now stand on her own two feet financially and emotionally. Most of the book is written from her point of view, her life and her struggles. The other point of view heard from is that of the mother.
What I found enjoyable about this story (and lets face it, it's a story told over and over) is that it gave a fresh and funny look at very real problems and possible scenarios and even solutions. It was by no means deep and profound but it worked and I like it. I loved these characters. It made me laugh and yes it even brought a tear to my eye.
