Review: A Reason to See You Again

A Reason to See You Again
A Reason to See You Again by Jami Attenberg
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the story of a family of four over a period of forty years. The patriarch, and the heart, of the family, Rudy, dies and leaves the mom and two girls rudderless. They spend the rest of their lives trying to find their true north. Weaving in and out of each others’ lives. Always finding their way back to each other.

It covers many topics around motherhood, family, sisterhood, marriage, loneliness, friendship (especially female friendship) and more.

This book is mostly sad. It’s real in so many ways and also it’s a true portrayal of inherited trauma. The writing is beautiful and the characters are so real they jump off the page.

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