Description

In some ways, this novel reminded me of Cheaper by the Dozen – two loving parents with a large family of children do their best to make it work. Things like 'best friends forever' are easier to say than do, and the truth is that you don't need to work on keeping close a friend, you just have to be there, to enjoy the friendship. However, when Samantha's world collides with Jase Garret's one night and they fall head-over-heels in love, Samantha soon becomes part of the Garret household. What I mean is that I have no clue about why this (wonderfully profound as always) sentence is blush worthy.

Well, Sam’s life did fall apart, but that was because of stupid mistakes, idiotic decisions, and loss of a brain for eight days. I was never quite sure why, but I will admit that the book reminded me pretty quickly just why I’d never made it to the end.When Jase, the third eldest Garrett child, introduces himself to Samantha, her dream of becoming part of their life comes true. The hardcover edition of My Life Next Door has a lifetime sales figure of 289 units in the United Kingdom, [4] whereas the paperback edition has a lifetime sales figure of 2407 units in the United Kingdom. The parts that really hooked me were individual character arcs such as Tim, Samantha’s best friend’s wild brother, and Grace.

Garrett is that he's out of ICU, and Sam's mom is still checking to see how he's doing; I would have liked for there to have been a coming-home-from-the-hospital scene, or at least a mention of a full recovery, but as a whole I think the climax was handled well. I thought this was going to be a quick summer read yet I was nicely surprised with the depth this book contained.I kept thinking of how things would have been different if Sam’s sister was there and I think it would have been a stronger novel if her relationship with her sister was allowed to develop. The Garrett's are everything Samantha's mother is not: unorganized, noisy, messy, and genuinely unconcerned with the opinions of others. Of course this situation all solves itself up very nicely, but I hated its entire presence in the novel. Furthermore, these kids, despite their vastly different personalities, all love one another and seem to mesh perfectly as siblings.
