My Ratings: 4/5

The book tells a short story around a tragic incident which affects the lives of three women and changes the course of their lives. For those who love quick reads with pace, suspense, thrill and relatable emotions like love, compassion, etc, this would make a good read.

What I liked about the book:

—> It came as a good breather between the longer texts I’m currently reading.
—> Loved how the characters in the story are connected to the main event but that’s where their similarity ends too.
—> Even though I’m not a mother myself, I could relate to the mommy stuff (so I guess the mothers would surely like and enjoy reading this one)
—> The way it talks about and handles differently abled children and their needs.
—> The three female protagonists are so different from one another and yet we find them relatable because they’re either like us or like someone we know.

What I did not like about the book:
—> The abrupt ending. I wanted to know what went around the main incident and what happened after it.
—> The second story’s lead female protagonist ( Lynne ) was a little confusing and irritating in her thought process and decision making.

Quotable quotes:
—> Life is finite, unpredictable, and impossible to explain. All we can do is reach out to friends and family. Hug each other and talk when we feel like it. And, maybe, eat ice cream.
—> Disney always put a happy ending on death.
—> When I think of having to share him someday with a girlfriend and then a wife, I cannot bear it.
—> No one is normal.
