As with all books by this author, I enjoyed this a lot but was constantly distracted by all the characters speaking like the most British people to ever British despite the book literally being set in my Los Angeles neighborhood. This is a very easy fix! I can’t fathom how no American editor ever seems to do a British slang pass! Americans do not use “fancy” as a verb!

I got halfway through and couldn’t finish. Added to DNF. I absolutely loved The Bookish Life of Nina Hill .. idk why this one didn’t capture my attention. Laura wasn’t a character I could relate to at all either so.. Oh well. On to the next.

I DNF Nina Hill, but I really loved this one. Also, no other book I’ve read has captured how driving with driving anxiety feels the way this one does.

I think this book had one less story to tell? It was a lot of characters and names to keep straight that I think was meant to fill in the world of bob and Laura but at times distracted.
