Reese’s Book Club pick for March was a very interesting read, to say the least! I will admit that The Jetsetters was a slow start for me, but by the end, I was hooked into the very intricate relationships in this story. Now all I want to do is hop on a plane and travel through Greece, Italy, and Spain; this book definitely gave me wanderlust!
Title: The Jetsetters
Author: Amanda Eyre Ward
Family function/disfunction is the main theme of this book, and Ward does an amazing job of creating likable and realistic characters. Her style of writing was captivating and surprisingly, I wasn’t thrown off by the different narration throughout the book. If this book had only been written from one of the character’s point of view, it would have completely tanked. The ending was bittersweet, yet it also seemed to fit perfectly into the character’s “break-through” moments.
I loved all of the characters equally, which is unusual for me. I often pick out a character and find something that I can identify with, but in this book, I found myself identifying with little parts of each character.
The bigggest take away I got from this book is this: A disfunctional family is still a family. Even when you feel like you have no connection, there is still a bond that can’t be broken.
