One Plus One by Jojo Moyes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I just really loved this book. The story of a single mom with a daughter & a step son she has taken responsibility for, Tanzie & Nicky. LIving a hard life. Kids getting bullied & beat up. Mom trying to make ends meet working a few jobs. Can't ever seem to get ahead. But always keeps a positive attitude that things will work out.
& when her daughter, who is a math genius, has a chance to win enough money to get her in a good school, they are off on an adventure. All in thanks to the man they meet that offers to give them a ride.
Jess & Ed are from 2 different worlds & the ride is a little rough. But as they hit snag after snag, they learn to depend on each other as everything wrong seems to happen on this trip.
Ed isn't without his own issues with a charge of insider trading & loosing everything he owns, & with a father who is sick & a sister who is giving it to him every chance she can get.
... & let's not forget the family dog, Norman, who is along for the ride the whole way.
I love seeing how Jess & Ed interact together & how the kids come to rely on him as well.
I was just so into where this story was going to go & how things would be handled & if things really would work out.
I will say, there is one point of the story that I was so angry about... like, I was thinking I wouldnt even finish... but I'm so glad I did.
I honestly just loved the story. I really loved Me Before You from Jojo Moyes, so now that I've read 2 of her books, I'm totally going to have to check out more of her stuff.
