In the Unlikely Event by Judy Blume

* Picture from Amazon*

Format read: Paperback

Genre: Historical Fiction

Rating: 6 out of 10

Plot: Miri Ammerman is a normal teenager until her world is turned upside down by a series of plane crashes that happened over the course of a few months in Elizabeth, New Jersey.  As the town tries to figure out how to cope with the series of tragedies, the lives of those around Miri are changed in ways that they didn’t expect.

Opinion: I loved reading Judy Blume books, both the children’s ones and the adult ones, so I had high hopes when I saw that she had written a new book.  I am not sure if it was because the book was told from so many perspectives or what, but I had a hard time getting into it.  I kind of felt like the plot was dragging and if it wasn’t for the plane crashes, there wouldn’t have been anything really to keep me going.  I was really disappointed with this book.

Next book: Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
