In honor of Elizabeth Scott Week, here's my review of Something, Maybe. Also check out the review from Anna Reads, the host for this review.
“I wonder what it would like to do high school things. To go out on the weekends. To kiss a guy. To have a normal life. A real one.” ~from inside cover
Hannah’s life isn’t very normal. Her mom, Candy Madison, is the star of her own website, her fame stemming from the short lived sitcom Cowboy Dad which she starred in with Hannah’s father, Jackson James. Hannah believes Josh is her soul mate. But she can’t stop thinking about Finn.
Hannah works for the drive thru answering service for BurgerTown USA with both Josh and Finn. Which proves quite an amusing situation with the constant commentary and comments directed at and about Josh from both Hannah and Finn. As if she wasn’t dealing with enough with the two boys, her father wants her back in his life. She’s unsure how to feel about this, since it’s been a confusing life with him. He’s there, but always seems more interested in his tawdry life. Her father announces that his daughter will be visiting him, and of course, everyone at school knows about it.
As every story by Elizabeth Scott, the multiple story lines converging and merging make it so much better. Hannah learns how to come to terms with the boys and her unusual family after facing several realities. I can’t really elaborate any more without giving away spoilers. The whole thing is funny, Hannah’s thoughts and the conversations with Josh and Finn and Teagan, her best friend. Life lessons galore among the humor. Must read.
