#1 New York Times Bestseller Jamie McGuire returns to self-publishing with this page-turning YA account of Erin Easter, one of three Erins in the small senior class of rural Blackwell High School who not only share a first name, but also their birthday. Easter, raised by a neglectful single mom, keeps to herself and admires Weston Gates from afar. The other Erins, Erin "Alder" Alderman and Erin "Sonny" Masterson are the darlings of the community: daughters of the two wealthiest families in town, best friends, cheerleaders, and everything Easter isn't--and they never let her forget it. Alder has even claimed Weston since the 8th grade.

Weston is a well-liked star athlete, and the son of two prominent attorneys. He struggles daily with the pressures of living up to his family name and secretly empathizes with Easter's feeling that she belongs somewhere else; in a different life. Not until he begins sneaking nights out with Easter does he gain the courage to buck expectations and acknowledge his feelings ... both for his future, and for her.

A shocking tragedy rocks the tiny town, and Easter's life is turned upside down in the best way possible. But when the truth is revealed and everything she thinks she wanted falls into her lap, life only becomes more complicated.

5/5 starsThis book reminds me of Stephen King's Word Processor of the gods, but not in a supernatural way. Once again, Jamie McGuire's addictive writing has sucked me in. I read this in one sitting.Eighteen-year-old Erin Easter has had a rough life. She is dirt poor, living with a drunk, high, negle...

1.5 Happenstance by Jamie McGuire
Here's the thing with tough subjects: they need time to be processed. In a novella with 100 pages and a number of tough subjects, there's simply not enough space to handle them properly.Happenstance offers several topics. Drugs, terrible home conditions, bullying to name some of them. We have Erin, ...

WOW is all I can say about this book. When I started this book I wasn't excepting all the emotions. But I LOVED, LOVED this book. I cried for Erin and cheered for Weston. I can not wait until the second book to find out how Erin deals with the new twist that was thrown at her. A word of advice..I...
