Luna’s fashion model mother has been dead a year having been hit by a cab after a dinner date with a friend. But when Luna finds her mother’s cell phone with seven messages, she begins to piece together what really happened by investigating the people who left messages with the help of her neighbor and competitive cello player, Oliver. A love interest develops only to be side-tracked by pressure from his domineering but absent father and, as Luna later finds out, by one of her former friends, Rachel One. Her movie director father gives her a camera for her birthday and the interesting premise for the story devolves into a fairytale with a twenty-something model Luna met helping her snag a show with a top gallery, a write up in the New York Times, and a possible book deal. Then she goes on a trip to Italy to stay with her uncle and his partner. Luna even begins to like her father’s new girlfriend. Even though Luna comes from a privileged background with famous parents, some readers will find this turn of events hard to swallow. The character development is slow and the prose is uneven but readers who like the glamor of New York may like it.… (més)

When life hands you a bone, take it to the dog park... Okay that was cheesy... but so was this book - in an amazing way! Following a format seen many times over, Page is dumped by her boyfriend and loses her job. Then, like all good rom coms, she moves somewhere far away to start over.

Living with her brother isn't all it's cracked up to be and she finds solice at a local dog park... So what happens? You'll have to read the book. But throughout this story, you'll laugh and enjoy yourself. It's a quick and easy read. Sure, it's following a well known troupe, but let's just admit it - we enjoy it anyways!

Thank you Netgalley and Lake Union for allowing me to read this and give my honest opinion.

I loved this book. I know many peple disliked the ending and I can get that b/c the part in New Yprk and the part in Europe are almost like two entirely different novels. However the final bit was my favorite part; the first part of the book was good in the way that many YA novels are good but the final part truly shone for me. It greatly reminded me of a Madeleine L'Engle novel in tone b/c Luna is like so many of L'Engle's main characters super adult and incredibly young at the same time. Furthermore the adults could come from the pages of a L'Engle novel with the way they very much have their own lives that are foreign and a bit scary to the younger protagonist. So many YA novels just have the adults as evil or as foils to their younger conterparts w/out true lives or stories of their own. This book is a must read in my opinion.… (més)

Life... Finds A Way. Ok, so I blatantly ripped a line from a very famous franchise that has literally nothing at all to do with this book, but it completely fits. This is a fun, quirky story about how life's seemingly random encounters can turn out to work out quite well indeed, and it does a phenomenal job of making the ride just dramatic enough to twist the heartstrings while ultimately staying true to itself. If you're looking for a more laid back, "oh, this is happening now, ok" level of escapism in these trying times, this is the book you're going to want to pick up. Very much recommended.… (més)
