  • Every Other Weekend # ARC Review

    Can life begin again…every other weekend?

    Adam Moynihan’s life used to be awesome. Straight As, close friends and a home life so perfect that it could have been a TV show straight out of the 50s. Then his oldest brother died. Now his fun-loving mom cries constantly, he and his remaining brother can’t talk without fighting, and the father he always admired proved himself a coward by moving out when they needed him most.

    Jolene Timber’s life is nothing like the movies she loves—not the happy ones anyway. As an aspiring director, she should know, because she’s been reimagining her life as a film ever since she was a kid. With her divorced parents at each other’s throats and using her as a pawn, no amount of mental reediting will give her the love she’s starving for.

    Forced to spend every other weekend in the same apartment building, the boy who thinks forgiveness makes him weak and the girl who thinks love is for fools begin an unlikely friendship. The weekends he dreaded and she endured soon become the best part of their lives. But when one’s life begins to mend while the other’s spirals out of control, they realize that falling in love while surrounded by its demise means nothing is ever guaranteed.


    Jo is pretty discouraged about her life with an absent father and an alcoholic mother. Adam is also not happy about his parents' divorce after his older brother died in a car accident. Both need to spend a few weekends with their fathers, and thanks to that, they end up meeting and connecting.

    At first, Jo is not very open to new friendships but Adam's gentle way ends up conquering the complicated girl. She loves filming but finds neither the friends nor family the support she needs to try a college spot.

    A beautiful story about love, friendship and courage to face life's difficulties. Even with the excessive drama of the characters, typical of Abigail Johnson's writing, I liked the story, I just think Jo urgently needed therapy because, with everything that happened in her life, only Adam's love and persistence would not help her totally to coming out of rock bottom.

    I loved the beautiful cover and the title combined with the story.
    4/5 stars


    Jo está bem desanimada com a vida que tem com um pai ausente e uma mãe alcoolatra. Adam tambem não está feliz com o divórcio dos pais depois do falecimento do irmão mais velho num acidente de carro. Ambos precisam passar alguns fim de semanas com os pais e graças a isso é que acabam se conhecendo e se conectando.

    De início, Jo não está muito aberta a novas amizades mas o jeito meigo de Adam acaba conquistando a complicada garota. Ela adora fazer filmagens mas não encontra nem nos amigos nem na família o apoio que necessita para tentar uma vaga na faculdade.

    Uma bela história sobre amor, amizade e coragem para enfrentar as dificuldades da vida. Mesmo com o excesso de drama dos personagens, típico da escrita de Abigail Johnson, gostei da história, só acho que Jo precisava  urgente de uma terapia pois com tudo o que aconteceu em sua vida, só o amor e persistência de Adam não iriam ajudar a garota a sair do fundo do poço.

    Achei linda a capa escolhida e o título combin demais com a história.

    4/5 estrelas
