The Art of Crash Landing

A new entry in my “Books I Can’t Stop Talking About” Series:

514j7krrsrl-_sx330_bo1204203200_The Art of Crash Landing, by Melissa DeCarlo.

The hero, Mattie Wallace, is mean, selfish, foul-mouthed, utterly lacking in morals … and impossible not to love. Broke and homeless, recently single and unexpectedly pregnant, she winds up in her mother’s hometown. It’s a sweet, cozy southern town full of people who immediately either love or hate our Mattie. Her mother never spoke about her childhood, or why she ran away and never returned. Mattie starts picking up the pieces of the story her mother buried …

I had no idea what to expect of this book and it kept me guessing all the way. Even the final chapter was still taking unexpected twists. It’s a rare book that keeps you laughing in the middle of this many ruined lives.

Best Line: Most people would probably have a hard time totally (screwing up) their life in under an hour. But then again, I’m not most people. I’m amazing. I’m like some kind of (screw-up) savant.
