October Breezes


October Breezes by Maria Rachel Hooley is….a masterpiece! I’m not kidding. This is an excellent book! Hooley’s writing sort of reminds me of Jodi Picoult, though it is not really fair to compare, since Hooley is in a class all of her own! I can’t wait to read more from Hooley. This book is real! The characters are people we all know. The situations are not fictitious. The book may be fiction, but I know people who have lived this life, these situations. I think this book could have been (or still can!) be made into a series, or at least a sequel. I want to know more about all of the characters! I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

About the Book: Skye Williams knows everything there is to know about mistrust: Dad skipped out when she was five. And now Warren Jacobs tries to sweep her Mom off her feet. But Warren's not the only concern rocking Skye's world. Devin Abbott, a guy she's known since kindergarten, has changed. He's become a tall, broad-shouldered guy she might date - if he wasn't her best friend. Skye swears there's nothing between them, but everyone else thinks differently. Devin doesn't act the way he used to, especially when Kellin Morgan, senior quarterback, asks Skye out. Flattered, she accepts, and, Devin sulls up - and he isn't the only one. Kellin's best friend, Tyler Rutherford, gets bent out of shape, too, as he's always wanted Skye for himself. When Kellin and Skye attend one of Tyler's famous parties, neither senses the impending disaster that will change not only her life but also that of everyone who loves her.
