Readers love to share about books they’re reading. We asked readers to recommend a book they enjoyed which most of their friends had not read. We’ll be sharing what we learned and hopefully you’ll find a new book to read. I know my TBR list will be growing as we get introduced to all these books.
Today Reanell from Book Babes Unite is sharing ➜ Whatever Life Throws at You by Julie Cross
I’m sharing my review:
Wow. This book. AMAZING!
I’m going to try my best at putting words together to tell you how much I loved this book. I just want to scream at everyone and say READ THIS BOOK!! That should work right? LOL.
Life loves a good curveball….Isn’t that the truth?
Annie Lucas is a seventeen year old girl who lives with her father(Jim) who lost his leg due to cancer, and her grandmother who has Alzheimer’s. Her mother isn’t in the picture but Annie is perfectly fine with that. Jim is offered a job as a pitching coach for the Kansas City Royals by his long time friend Frank Steadman. Frank just started his job as the new general manager and wants Jim to work with a young pitcher named Jason Brody.
Jim and Annie pack up with grandma and leave to Missouri. The first encounter with Jason Brody was hilarious. Locker room and Jason in a towel…makes for a good combination! And Annie’s reaction to this is one of my favorite parts of the book. But Annie soon realizes that Brody(as she refers to him) is a playboy and somebody she shouldn’t be crushing on.
The character development in this book is absolutely amazing. I think I loved every single character in it. Brody and Annie’s relationship is one that I am going to remember for a long time. My absolute favorite part of this book is when Annie tells him she is struggling with spanish. He whispers spanish in her ear…..she doesn’t know what he said. USE TRANSLATION PEOPLE! You have to know what he says to her. When the words were translated, I sighed with adoration. So sweet and romantic. SERIOUS BOOK LOVE!
Bravo Julie Cross you have a winner with this one! This coming of age love story is one that will touch the hearts of many. I laughed, I cried, and during some scenes almost had a heart attack. It has everything I love in a book. I don’t know what else to say other than….BUY THIS BOOK!
THE RECOMMENDED BOOK
