This is about life not being perfect People not being perfect That as we go through life, the paint chips off, we get dented, and sometimes we break.Bryan Greenwood is very astute with the characters she writes about She makes her characters seem like real people A theme of hers seems to be not judging by appearance or even circumstance Her writing makes me wonder what she would write about me if she knew me.Her characters are broken but in a very particular way who by circumstance and This is about life not being perfect People not being perfect That as we go through life, the paint chips off, we get dented, and sometimes we break.Bryan Greenwood is very astute with the characters she writes about She makes her characters seem like real people A theme of hers seems to be not judging by appearance or even circumstance Her writing makes me wonder what she would write about me if she knew me.Her characters are broken but in a very particular way who by circumstance and or personality or both, can be healed or redeemed by only one other In this way her books are romantic although they don t look it on the surface.In this story I really liked Bernie and his Aunty Ginny Bernie and Meda are both products of their heritage, although I did struggle with Meda s anger sometimes because I don t like people who seem to like to pick fights.I like this book for not portraying a perfect life or couple.Recommended
