Second Chance

Jane Green introduces a more serious side of her writing in the novel Second Chance. It’s a warm story about childhood friends who have lost touch over the years. The group is reunited by the death of one of their closest friends. This tragedy forces them to reexamine their lives, relationships and priorities.

I had a difficult time getting into the novel. There are so many different characters and story lines that I found it hard to connect to any of them fully. The material is a bit heavier than Green normally writes about, but in all honesty sometimes I read her books to just get away from life and a good laugh. This book made marriage/family/ real grown up life seem in a way undesirable.
