Shine Shine Shine by Lydia Netzer
This book is considered Science Fiction simply because Maxon is an expert in robotics that is on his way to the moon to set his robots in motion to build an outpost there. But what this book really is about is family. How the perfect seeming family is never perfect and it’s the imperfections that make families and relationships so wonderful.
Sunny has the ideal suburban life. She is slim, blonde and on all the right boards. She has her son on all the correct medications for his Autism. She is pregnant with her second child. She has a wonderful husband who is an astronaut. All is well in her universe until the car accident that knocks the wig from her head and causes her to look at her perfect life and face facts. Perfection is highly overrated.
I loved this book. I listened to it and found myself driving around more than necessary to listen just a little bit more. It’s fun, funny and thought provoking. The characters are wonderfully drawn and I really wish that I could know them all.
