Review: One Two Three

One Two Three
One Two Three by Laurie Frankel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 stars

Laurie Frankel creates the most beautiful and memorable characters. She writes stories that stay with you long after you finish the book. Her characters care so deeply and profoundly that it’s impossible to read her books and not feel the same way.

“This is How it Always is” was my favorite book the year it came out so I was incredibly excited to get to read One Two Three and it absolutely did not disappoint.

This story is about triplets Mab, Monday, and Mirabel who live in the town Bourne where a terrible tragedy occurred seventeen years ago and the town is still reeling from it. The girls’ mother will not stop fighting for justice. A new family moves into town for the first time in a long time and things start taking a most unexpected turn.

The story is told from the perspectives of the three girls, each of whom have a unique and memorable voice. The audio version of the book is exceptional, especially with what it did to make Mirabel come alive. The overarching story is about eco-terrorism and what the chemical plant did to destroy an entire town. But then there are stories around teen love, around what it means to be sisters, around parenthood, around wishes and dreams.

This is another moving story by Frankel that will make you think. It will make you angry, it will make you sad, and it will make you cheer loudly for three girls who are so incredibly brave and mighty.

With gratitude to netgalley, Henry Holt & Company, and Macmillan Audio for an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.
