Tom Perotta: Mrs. Fletcher

Mrs. Fletcher - Tom Perrotta

I really enjoyed this book. The main character, Eve, is almost exactly the age I was when I read it, and I found much in her character that I could relate to. I liked how the book opened with Eve observing that big days never go the way you hope they will, and then the reader watches as each character had to cope with their big plan not going the way they hoped it would, and how they have to find a new way. I also liked how each character started out as almost a stereotype, and gradually became an individual as they let go of expectations and embraced their own choices. I loved the mistakes they made as they were trying to figure it out. I really liked this book. Recommended.
