    a movie in the works In Every Way YESWonderful story The plot moved quickly, but with ample time to develop the characters I loved the honesty of Maria s feelings I had anticipated a sad story, but felt uplifted when it was over.

    I only finished this book because I kept thinking, It s got to get better than this But it didn t I really wanted to dope slap Maria and tell her, all of these problems are due to your incredibly stupid and selfish decisions Why did I waste my time on this book Please don t waste yours.

    A good book The narrative was simple, following the passage of time What made the book special was its presentation of a nuanced morality and how it evoked feeling about family, friends, and relationships The circumstances of this book are surreal to me.

    I wanted to like this book a lot than I did I found the plot to be too contrived and unbelievable, and the characters were not well drawn I finished the book still wondering what motivated all of the characters to act so recklessly and selfishly It was entertaining to read the references to real Chapel Hill locations.

    A young unmarried girl gives baby up for adoption with the father s consent Then she finds the family, becomes their babysitter, has affair with adopted father and comes really close to ruining that marriage Later comes to the realization that this is not good DUH Maria has to admit she desired only the moments of parental ease removed from the stretches of labor between page 258

    Too contrivedMany facets of this book were too fantastical for me Maria, a nineteen year old young woman, has a child out of wedlock Because the baby s father is less than reliable, she decides to give the child up for adoption During Maria s pregnancy, her mother is in end stage breast cancer and barely alive.The adoptive parents live in Beaufort, and when Maria s mother wants one last visit with her college roommate who lives there, Maria cannot get her suitcase packed quickly enough Maria had [...]

    If a woman read this book in a bad mood, she d finish it and think, That s why men shouldn t write female protagonists The details are correct Her breasts leak upon being reunited with the daughter she gave up for adoption But her movements feel hollow The writing is forensic It tells you what is happening and how the characters are feeling, but it doesn t feel authentic But, on the other hand, I appreciated that it s a story about a woman giving her child up for adoption women s fiction, I m af [...]

    Reasonably well written book with an interesting plot Young girls gives a baby up for adoption and in scanning the prospective parents, sees a man she recognizes from her summer vacation town and chooses him and his wife On summer vacation, she gets a job babysitting Disaster ensues.Adoption issues abound as well as issues with her mother s terminal illness I thought the book was reasonably compelling if the plot appeals, but not a must read.

    This book was very interesting It was so wrong IN EVERY WAY, so that you are cringing as the main character makes her bad choices, one after another, and yet you keep reading It definitely showed how everyone is flawed and yet how you can absolutely still love them in spite of that.

    It s hard to review a book by your friend, but I will say that it kept me up late two nights in a row and made me feel lots of feelings.

    I enjoyed the book a quick read I chose this book because of the adoption story, which sounded so interesting Maria is pregnant and her mother is dying of cancer Lots of emotion.

    I liked it decent beach read the main character is difficult to like but it suits the purpose of the story.

    As a quick beach read, not bad I liked the beginning much than rest of the book, which gets too overwrought.

    Beautiful and heartbreaking, but it a way that affirms the mistakes we make and the mess that is life.
