Review: If We’re Being Honest

If We're Being Honest
If We’re Being Honest by Cat Shook
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the story of a family, mostly told from the perspective of the adult grandchildren. The grandfather passes away and a secret comes to the surface during his eulogy that shocks the family and each member takes it in their own way as they grapple with their own lives, their own struggles and their own secrets.

I love books like these that are mostly character driven and we get a glimpse into other lives, other choices, other struggles. It makes me feel less alone in the world and I end up getting invested in the characters’ lives and choices and I end up having deep empathy for each of them.

Really enjoyed this book full of humor and heart.

with gratitude to netgalley and Celadon Books for an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review
