A review to address some story questions I’ve received

Summer 20XX

Summer 20XX by M. Reali-Elliott

I wanted to write a summary review regarding some feedback on this book. While light in nature, for the discerning reader who wishes to examine it deeper, there are many elements that provide a more rich foundation to analyze the book upon.

There is a sense in which time is a key element as it is driving the main character to anxiously race against the clock to spend quality time with her children. The anxiety of feeling like time is passing by is featured in choppy, dated, events-based memories. It is also written in a journalistic manner, where our thoughts can bounce a little.

Also in a journalistic style, it is intentionally honest and focused on one character’s perspective. All her frustrations and feelings and moments that matter draw together in what she reports; this interweaves the elements that have impacted their summer and time together in a unique way, much closer to the way our minds process events.

Names have been left out for many locations and people, because with the intent to inspire, the point is that this could be anyone’s summer any time they chose to give up daily frustrations and issues to refocus on the humorous side of things.

Like any journey of growth, we can’t begin with everything coming up roses, especially when finding joy amidst challenge is the main premise behind the story. With that in mind, the points in the book that feature laughter are intended to be noteworthy, whether they feature a dry laugh, a mirthful chuckle, or a full-body howl.
