MY REVIEW - everything you hoped for,
and then some.
What a ride Lori Otto has taken us on!
From sweet sixteen to first love, to heartache and breakups, we have seen Livvy
through her journey to becoming a woman. And I am so damn proud of her! We've
seen Livvy make some really bad decisions, and say some really hurtful things.
We've seen how heartbreak can fuel her creativity. We've seen a teenager
rebelling against her restraints, for good and bad. We've seen Livvy
devastated. But all of this has, together with her loving family, and her
wonderful boyfriend, helped make Livvy into the kind of woman we could all wish
to be, and the kind of woman we would be proud to have as our daughter.
I truly think that this book is the
pinnacle of Lori Otto's writing. And that's taking nothing away from Lori's
previous books. They are in no way "less". But Livvy IS
"more". I can't quite put my finger on it. Nothing in Livvy surpasses
the emotion of Time Stands Still. There is nothing more beautiful than the
words written in Dear Jon. Maybe it's just that we've been on this journey with
Livvy and it means so much to get to the end with her. Lori's writing IS
beautiful and the story told in Livvy IS emotional. Maybe it's just that
everything that has made Lori's previous books so delicious to read is wrapped
up with a pretty pink bow in Livvy. I don't know.
What I DO know is that if you have been
on this journey with Livvy? This final installment will be everything you hoped
for, and then some.
