Hi guys ! Today is the release date for a very touching book I’ve read last year : Rules for moving by Nancy Star. Dealing with parenthood, family and loss, it explores all kind of topics and feelings we might be trying to get around to as adults, and although I still don’t consider myself a full grown adult, I still loved it and got some feels while reading it. The parents-kids relationships present in this book are everything, and they’re absolutely worth reading about !
To the outside world, beloved advice columnist Lane Meckler has all the answers. What no one knows is that she also has a secret: her life is a disaster, and it’s just gotten worse. Her husband, whom she was planning to leave, has died in a freak accident. Her six-year-old son, Henry, has stopped speaking to everyone but her. Lane’s solution? Move. Growing up, that was what her family did best.
But when she and Henry pack up and leave, Lane realizes that their next home is no better, and she finally begins to ask herself some hard questions. What made her family move so often? Why has she always felt like an outsider? How can she get Henry to speak?
On a journey to help her son find his voice, Lane discovers that somewhere along the way she lost her own. If she wants to help him, she’ll need to find the courage to face the past and to speak the truth she’s been hiding from for years.
Thanks for reading 🙂
See you soon,
