Teen Reading Material

For the last two weeks, this has been my teen son's reading material:

It looks remarkably similar to my reading material 20 years ago.

And last week, we went and stood in line at the TX DPS for 3 1/2 hours
to get his learner's permit.

3 1/2 hours!!

We'd been warned it could take 3-5 hours.

I think he would have slept over night in that line if he'd had to.

The First Husband

In The First Husband by Laura Dave,
the main character Annie Adams seems to have it all.

A good career, a loving dog, a long-time boyfriend...
and suddenly everything unravels
and her life is thrown off center.

Then, before you know it,
she's married to someone new
and moving halfway across the country,
leaving everything familiar behind for her husband.

And things aren't easy at first...

A difficult mother-in-law,
her husband's ex,
family issues...

and then Annie's previous boyfriend is back in the running again.

 It's definitely an entertaining story.

I love that Annie decides to really shake up her life by doing things differently...
and ends up finding happiness.

How many of us are brave enough to do that?

This was a fun read for me.
A quick read.
A book you want to read all in one sitting.
