I got on a Jane Green kick as they are good summer reads. My last one left a little to be desired writing-wise, so I didn’t have high hopes for Second Chance. But Green definitely brushed up on her writing skills in the 7 years between these two books. And unlike Jemima J., I had not read this book before.
Childhood friends are thrown together again after a tragic event. They reminisce, examine their own lives, and reconnect as they mourn a deep loss. It’s definitely not a happy-go-lucky read. The group are all in very different stages in life, each navigating their own issues. In truth, it’s kind of depressing. But there are redeeming scenes and the characters are captivating.
Another quick read – good for the plane or road trip. Enjoy!
