#16thingsithoughtweretrue

It’s been a while guys and I’m sorry for that. I’m hoping to get back to regular posting, but it all depends on how things go. Anyways, Janet Gurtler ┬áis one of my favorite authors and I just finished #16thingithoughtweretrue. (Since this title is special, I don’t even know how to punctuate it.) But here’s what I thought about it. This is not a page-turner. This is a brain teaser. Actually, I’m not sure brain teaser is the right word. What I mean is, this book makes you think. In a good way. Morgan is going through a lot. Lexi is someone she thought was her best friend until she posts a video of Morgan dancing in men’s underwear to LMFAO’s “Sexy and I Know It” that goes viral. Her mom lied to her about her dad leaving them and she has yet to meet him. Adam is her boss who is becoming a new friend, just like her co-worker Amy, who is hiding a big secret of her own. They go on a road trip together to find her dad. During the process she learns who in her life has earned the spot to be there and how to let go and not care what anyone else thinks. I like it. It’s a very simple story, yet with a lot of complicated relationships. Isn’t that the story of a lot of people’s lives? We are all connected after all…just like Pocahontas said…just think about it....
