Here's how Redbook magazine described The Goodbye Year in its list of the 20 best books you absolutely must read this spring!
The Goodbye Year, by Kaira Rouda
Will, Melanie and Sarah are all parents in three separate families grappling with the same issue: their children are graduating high school and soon will be off to college, leaving them with empty houses and no buffer to distract them from their domestic and personal problems. Told from the perspectives of both the parents and the kids, the novel covers how the uncertainty involved with children leaving home for the first time affects family as a whole.
Why we're looking forward to it: The family dramas and dynamics are things that we can all relate to while experiencing them in new ways through the characters.
Thank you, Redbook magazine! Here's the entire list! 20 Best Books to Read This Spring!
