I don't typically write book reviews, one thing you might not know about me is that I LOVE to read. A compelling story, in any format really, can make my day. P.S. if you don't have the This American Life NPR app downloaded - do so NOW!
Back to books. I knew one of my bests from college was working on penning her first novel, I had no idea just how much blood, sweat and tears (mostly tears) were put into "Siding With Plato". From the flip of the first page I adored Brooke Aarons, the main character. In fact - she reminds me entirely of a beautiful friend I know, as do the rest of th characters.
Michelle does a fantastic job of taking the reader through Brooke's bright eyed viewpoint. It's the college experience you never had (but I certainly did). The parties, boys, ridiculous sorority girls - lived it, loved it, and I promise you will be entertained by "Siding With Plato" from start to finish. It will make you so thankful for you girlfriends and even more nostalgic for belly button piercing a and dorm room living.
While I'm SO proud of Michelle the opinions in this post are 100% my own and I'm not writing this as a favor to a dear friend, I'm writing it as a favor to you.
You can order Michelle Manning's novel "Siding With Plato" on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
