what alice forgot is already gone. a friend is going on vacation tomorrow, and there it went - pure entertainment for a long car ride. luckily i had her snap this photo before they left.
in this book, alice wakes up on a cold gym floor. she's 29, expecting her first child, and can't remember what she ate for breakfast. the emts are gentle, but the stretcher carries her past people who know her, whom she does not recognize. alice is deeply in love with her husband, and can't understand why he does not come to the hospital.
one shock follows another. she's not pregnant. she's getting divorced. she has 3 children and is really 39.
whew. that was some concussion. i recommend this book for poolside, traveling, or stress relief reading. it captures your attention, and keeps it. best of all, when you finish reading, you still have lots to think about. what would your younger self think of your life today?
summer reading recommendations?
