This was an excellent fluff read/rebound book after finishing A Little Life. Reid’s concept is awesome, two sides of a coinflip on life. Hannah Martin is a floater, and not quite sure where she wants to be to get comfortable in the world. She keeps moving, changing jobs, changing boyfriends, and doesn’t feel very stable because of it, but can’t seem to escape that part of her nature. She moves back to Los Angeles, somewhat on a whim after breaking up with her last boyfriend, and less than two days into her new life, she has to make a big decision. Should she spend more time with an ex boyfriend who she’s never sure she stopped loving, or should she let him go? So Reid gives us a multiverse split perspective, and shows us what would happen in each timeline.
If you haven’t heard of the multiverse theory, it’s that infinite timelines are created every time a decision is made for all the possible outcomes.
In one life, Hannah stays out with her ex, gets together with him, and explores the problems that come up in her life. Some of the problems are a direct result of being with him, some are things that were already in action from before she moved to Los Angeles, but how Hannah handles them with her ex is different from how she might have handled them on her own or with someone else.
The romance was very light, and the overall tone of the book was quite light, despite a few heavy things happening, including divorce, pregnancy, and car crashes. I’m glad I read this book when I did, as I had a very positive experience reading this. I can see that this book might be too fluffy or boring if you’re not in the right mood.
