A little math for you on this fine evening…
The Breakfast Club + Melancholia = We All Looked Up
Quite the combination, but well worth the read. This young adult novel tells the story of four very different teenagers trying to make the best of the few weeks they have left (before the world ends). Wallach is a beautiful writer. He sold me early on with this line: “But if she’d learned anything in the past year, it was that no amount of suffering could save you from more of it.”
And, teenager or not, sometimes life just feels like that*.
*My step-father passed away rather unexpectedly while I was camping last week. And sometimes it seems that no matter what, it’s always too soon. So enjoy some comfort food (mine is pizza with basil), raise a glass, and hug your loved ones.
(I received a review copy of this novel in exchange for my honest opinion. I loved it.)
