Everyone loves a good book and now you can enjoy reading along with other UpNorthLive fans!
Each month we will choose a book for our UpNorthLive Book Club. We will also choose a fellow bookworm (could it be you?) to come on UpNorthLive Tonight to discuss the book with us! So pick up this month's book, sit back and indulge your imagination!
For May we chose "Real Life & Liars" by Kristina Riggle. Riggle is an author from West Michigan!
About the Book:
As a wilted flower child, Mira Zielinski has never been one to follow orders. Not from her husband, not from her boss - not even from her oncologist. Mira has her own idea about handling her newly diagnosed breast cancer, and it does not involve hopping up on the operating table. Her grown children will no doubt object -- when she gets around to telling them.
As they come home for the weekend of Mira and Max's thirty-fifth wedding anniversary party, her kids harbor some secret trials. Middle child Ivan's lifelong desire to be a songwriter is withering on the vine after years of futility and his dating haplessness is so familiar, it's almost a family joke. The impulsive and very young youngest child Irina will walk in the door with a surprise groom, though she's already looking for the escape hatch in her shiny new marriage. As for the oldest, Katya, let's just say that it would be a relief if her husband's big secret were just the affair she suspects he's having. As these trials unfold, certain family truths come to light but will they shake Mira's resolve?
