Friday Memes: Young Widows Club by Alexandra Coutts

Happy Friday everybody!!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

This week I am spotlighting Young Widows Club by Alexandra Coutts. I got this ARC from Macmillan. Here is the description:
First came love, then came marriage, and then...

For seventeen-year-old Tam, running off to marry her musician boyfriend is the ideal escape from her claustrophobic high-school life on the island, and the ultimate rebellion against her father and stepmother. But when Tam becomes a widow just weeks later, the shell-shocked teen is forced to find her way forward by going back to the life she thought she’d moved beyond—even as her struggle to deal with her grief is forcing her to reinvent herself and reach out to others in ways she never imagined.
Beginning:
It's one of those flawless, cotton-candy-cloud days.
Friday 56:
"I think so," I nod. The back of my throat throbs and I try to think about anything other than what's happening. This is not goodbye. This is not me leaving the two people who have treated me like family from the moment we met.

  2. This book seems ok, but I don't think it would be for me mainly because I don't typically read many contemporary novels.
