Book Review: The Good Part
Book: The Good Part
Author: Sophie Cousens
Thank you to NetGalley and Penguin Group Putnam for an eARC in exchange for my honest review.
I adored this book! If you have ever watched the movie Big and remember that Josh made a wish at the Zoltar machine, this will remind you of that!
Lucy Young is twenty-six years old and is just tired of the way her life is going. She lives in an apartment with one of her best friends along with a few others. Her ceiling is leaking, she can’t go to the bathroom without missing toilet paper and her television job is not going the way she hoped.
One night after a bad date she stumbles upon a wishing machine in a small shop. She wishes to fast forward to the good part of her life.
Her wish is granted and she wakes up the next day, sixteen years ahead in her life. She wakes up next to a man, a ring on her finger, and two children. She now has to try and figure out and adjust to the life in front of her.
Her son Felix is probably one of my favorite characters I’ve ever read. He is so smart and senses something isn’t right with his mom, but he helps her along this journey. I loved all the time they both spent together throughout the book.
This book helps you appreciate the journey of getting to the good part of life. I couldn’t put this book down. It was so adorable. I loved all the characters and by the end this book will have you tugging on your heartstrings.
Final Score: 5/5
