This first-time author needs to blame his publisher for a misguided cover. The title and the picture on the cover makes you think you’re getting an easy chick lit read, but that definitely isn’t what this is. Nathan is a college dropout and takes what he thinks is an easy job as a caretaker for 8 weeks on the east coast for a 72-year-old lady. He thinks he is to be her escort, but he ends up having to watch her more closely than he thinks he will because she is suffering from dementia.
Nathan is not someone I would like, so I have a hard time judging the novel because I dislike the main character. He’s a wuss and is constantly looking for love when it isn’t there. He lies a lot. He doesn’t take care of the old lady like he should, but at least he feels guilty about it. He is an artist, but can’t quite figure out what he wants to do with his talent.All in all, this isn’t a novel I’ll recommend to anyone. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t like it, either. Nathan is one messed up kid.
