Lisa and her lovely daughter Francesca share with us some great essays. It’s their thoughts on so many issues. It can be everyday life issues, political issues or just anything. It’s like small friendly talk. The essays are separate and each one takes you into a different topic.
I can’t say whom I love more. Lisa and Francesca are both amazing. Sometimes I caught myself laughing out loud, sometimes smiling and sometimes just thinking deeply. There is something in each and every essay that will catch your interest.
I think the secret ingredient is the simplicity, and of course the lovely two authors. They are putting part of their spirits into the words. Reading this book felt like a friendly chatter between close friends on a lovely summer afternoon. Lisa is not just an author. She’s someone you want to be friend with. She’s a lovely hilarious person. You know that type of friend that you always enjoy talking to. And Francesca is the new age empowered young woman who sees things positively and wants to take things into her own hands. She won’t be driven along. She’s a strong amazing woman.
Have you ever had the question “Am I the only one?” Well I had it about so many things. This book answered this question. Thanks. I am not alone. There are other people who have those tiny thoughts about things. Funny right?! There are things – very trivial things maybe – that I thought I was the only one doing or considering or whatever. I was amazed to see some of those in the book.
Finally, I Need a Lifeguard Everywhere But the Pool is an amazing summer read. Don’t miss it. It will lift your mood and empower you. I am amazed. Lisa Scottoline seems to have two sides. The thriller author and the funny dear relative. I love both!
