The ending that everyone's talking about, from "refreshing"* to "an interesting twist"**--and thank you for not spoiling it in your reviews!--will now be explored in Phoebe's next leg of the journey.
"Things and people are never exactly what you’d expect, and you’ll never guess the ending..." Hermione Flavia wrote in her blog CravenWild. How right she was! I won't spoil my own book, but if you haven't read Like a Closed Fist yet and want to know what all the fuss is about, head on over to Amazon, then come back to this page. For those of you who remember Phoebe (semi-fondly), Bruce (very fondly), and Mitch, Mason, Frankie, Justin, Kennedy, and Danny (phew! Got 'em all!) the wait to find out what happens to them will soon be over.
Phoebe 2.0: mature, independent, and enjoying Life-After-(no spoilers here). Picking up moments after the first book ended, Phoebe is convinced she's on the right path with her current squeeze. Bruce, everyone's favorite tough-love dad, takes a stand and tries to break the mismatched pair up. Will Phoebe find "lasting bliss in her life" in the sequel, as wondered by Goodreads reviewer Steve Kerner? Is Mitch her one true love, or will her heart turn in a different direction?
With all your favorites, Bruce, Annie, Leo, Mitch (okay, he's not everyone's favorite), a return appearance from someone very special (it's a surprise, wanna take a guess?), and another trip to beautiful North Carolina, this California girl has another adventure in store for her!
