My dad once said to me, "You give a lot of books three stars." I do.
This is a SVR 2018 book. A copy was available on Overdrive, and I needed a desk book.
I kept getting pulled out of the story at the beginning because I kept having to Google things. Can people who are allergic to NSAIDs take aspirin? What is the difference between lo mein and chow mein?
But once I settled into the story, the book read very quickly. It might have read a little too quickly? At the end I didn't feel like a year had passed. The book also ended quite abruptly. I would have liked a little more resolution.
ETA: There were times where I was reading, and it was like seeing my family on the page. That doesn't happen too often, and I like when it does.
