Stairs of Sand Review

I am typically one of those readers who goes in the book store and buys the first book I see with a cute cover. Needless to say almost every book I read is exactly the same. Girl falls in love with boy, boy falls in love with girl. The end. Getting rather predictable. I figured I would mix it up by doing some book reviews. I am applying to review any book I see. This should help broaden my horizon right? :)

I had the opportunity to review a novel called Stairs of Sand by Eileen Granfors. I need to say upfront that this story does use some curse words, etc. However, I really enjoyed it. It was about Suzanne, or Zoozle, and her mother and they "chaotic" journey they go through in their lives together. Suzanne is what her mother would think of as a rebellious and wild child, even in her 20's. As you read you realize she isn't so wild after all. Things just aren't how they seem. Eileen did a great job of helping the reader understand why Suzanne is so crazy and why their relationship has gotten so lost over the years. To me it really taught a lesson in the end, but I can't say what that is. You should go out and read it for yourself! It was a great book! HIGHLY recommend it to anyone looking for a "can't put it down" type book.
