Charming, and engaging story

Quirky, fun and a charming story.

I read this immediately following "Me Before You," and it was simply wonderful. Where MBY had me crying buckets, "One Plus One" left me with a soaring heart with lots of laughs. The characters of this story have their faults, and that's what I like about them- they feel real; and they are quirky, but not in such a way that their quirkiness is forced. While the premises are quite different, I couldn't help but be reminded of the movie Little Miss Sunshine.

The lastest book by one of my new favorite authors does not disappoint. Jess and Ed, both with a lot of 'stuff' going on in their lives get thrown together on a trek to a Math(s) contest. If Jess's daughter can win she'll get money to go to a private school. The adversity and shared experiences of the trip lead to inevitable closeness for the couple. I love the well-rounded characters and unlike some 'chick lit' this book is more balanced between the male and female. We get good back-stories on both and get to see what's going on in both their heads. Obviously this book is light weight but so enjoyable. I especially like how the characters are willing to talk things out. In so many stories I find myself just wishing characters would TELL each other stuff.
