A second book that lived up to the first...
I will admit, the title drew me in. After the title, it was remembering "Where the Heart is" and it being a crazy book in which the lead character had a baby in a Walmart and the friends they gathered around them spoke true about what a good person could be (regardless of creed, colour, orientation…).
This was another quick read, and one that I enjoyed. I am not even sure where to start in terms of describing how this book pulled me in, and to provide a snappy plot summary. Ultimately this book is about a car hop diner in Oklahoma and the unlikely cast of characters it draws in - from the paraplegic owner, to the run away daughter, to the Vietnamese man that arrives and never leaves. This is a story about people, and relationships, and at it's core, community.
I love having a huge pile of books to read on my shelf… I get to walk up and see what one strikes my fancy next!
