Like Coming Home!

Fly Away Home -Jennifer Weiner's latest treat is due to hit the summer bookshelves mid-july. I had the pleasure of reading this book over the long weekend and it hit the spot! With so many books from which to choose and limited time, picking the right book isn't always an easy task. I'll make this real simple for you -do not miss this book! Fans of Jen's work(Good in Bed, In Her Shoes, Little Earthquakes, to name a few) will be thrilled with the storyline and cast of characters in Fly Away Home.
A bit reminiscent of the sisters in In Her Shoes, sisters Diana and Lizzie are more alike than it would seem. Working through their relationship while a family crisis is making an appearance doesn't detract from everyone doing their own work. Parents, Sylvie and Richard learn who they are both as a united team and as individuals. It's interesting to watch what emerges. Written in Weiner's unique style-sharp,hysterical,thoughtful...Fly Away Home is what the perfect read should be!! Yea,Jen!!!
