-- My Thoughts --
Pat Peoples has been in a mental facility for quite a long time. But of course, he doesn't know that. So, when he goes out, and everything has changed. His favorite team, the Eagles, are losing. His wife, Nikki, has left him. Though, he has no idea why. His father won't talk to him. And then, there is Tiffany, the broken, mysterious girl.
Pat Peoples is one of the most complex characters ever written. His strange string of emotions are so believable. All his good deeds, his flaws, come together to construct an amazing three-dimensional character that you cannot help but fall for. I LOVED Pat so damn much. And I was wishing, hoping, praying that everything would work out for him. Tiffany, is an equally strange and complex character and I LOVED her, too.
This is the true definition of a thought provoking read.It made me think about the true value of life and I cannot say how great this book is. This is a book about family, love, and moving on.That love can be found in the strangest of places, and that it's always in front of you but you just don't see it. This book is what the reviewers call "A Life-Changing Book".
