I am spending my summer traveling with BookSparks in this year’s #SRC2015. Right now, I am traveling with Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid. Destination: Escape to Sunny Los Angeles.
Maybe In Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid
About The Book:
At the age of twenty-nine, Hannah Martin still has no idea what she wants to do with her life. She has lived in six different cities and held countless meaningless jobs since graduating college. Just after midnight, Gabby asks Hannah if she’s ready to go. A moment later, Ethan offers to give her a ride later if she wants to stay. Hannah hesitates. What happens if she leaves with Gabby? What happens if she leaves with Ethan? In concurrent storylines, Hannah lives out the effects of each decision. Quickly, these parallel universes develop into radically different stories with large-scale consequences for Hannah, as well as the people around her. As the two alternate realities run their course, Maybe in Another Life raises questions about fate and true love: Is anything meant to be? How much in our life is determined by chance? And perhaps, most compellingly: Is there such a thing as a soul mate?
This is a cool story. It reminds me of those "choose your own path" stories you could read when you were a kid. But Hannah gets to travel both paths, not just the one! It is interesting to question the what ifs and the should I haves. This is a great read.
