The title of this book had me hello The jacket flap
sealed the Exquisite Acquisitions (The Highest Bidder deal The reading made me full of long and joyeal The reading made me full of long and joy The Bodyguards Promise / The Missing Millionaire delightFrom page one I climbed into Donna s back pocket and was totally wrapped up in her journey though this book I haven t rooted so hard for a character in a long time I just wanted everything to be all right for her She makes some greatecisions some terrible ones but they all seemed really ne This book had me from the prologue Donna is fourteen Her father is Tall in the Saddle dying and it s time for her to say goodbye And I felt just exactly the same when I was nineteen and my father wasying and it was time for me to say goodbye It s rare for me to read a book about grief where I fully identify with the way "The Main Character Feels It I M Not Saying That "main character feels it I m not saying that other forms of grief are wrong or badly written just not mine And in so many ways through so many situations Donna was feeling my grief For that reason take my reaction to this book with an entire shaker full of salt because I couldn t possibly be objectiveSo It s now four years past her father s The Desert Virgin (Knight Brothers, death and Donna still feels stuck andrifting And then a little suddenly she A Spanish Vengeance decides she wants to go into the funeral business Her mother absolutely cannot understand this which is somewhat reasonable It s a career path well outside of the expected and Donna makes herecision and springs it on her mother sort of suddenly And Donna can t explain how her mother is suddenly The Rough and Ready Rancher dating her hot yoga teacher which is somewhat less reasonable Then again maybe I would have felt the same when I was eighteen I hope that I wouldn t have Reasonable or not it was at least understandableOther readers whoon t identify so strongly with Donna will probably find the pace a little too slow There s large chunks of the book where nothing much happens Donna s new friend Liz is essentially a Manic Pixie Dream Girl And the actual mortuary science gets very short coverage in a book that you could reasonably expect would have of it All very valid concerns but ones that If You Cant Stand the Heat... didn t affect my enjoyment of this book The synopsis that I had read for this title make it seem as though this tale is about Donna s coming of age But really this book encompasses an entire family s rebirth The Parisis lost their father to cancer a few years before the beginning of this novel and the plot opens while the family is still in some sort of stasis The mother remains loyal to her husband notating not socializing The younger sister Linnie is rebellious in the form of wild hair color choices and Donna herself is slightly withdrawn and maybe a little morose Only the eldest brother seems to have cleanly moved on succeeding at college and a healthy relationshipIt was a uiet novel What starts as Donna being portrayed as a uiet girl is slowly revealed to be a girl changed by her father s early The Ultimate Surrender death She s very much in her own head throughout the book I think that s why youon t notice how little interaction with others Donna really has I felt like at first she could just be super uiet Her reactions to things are uirky and unexpected When her new BF Liz is called a spitfire Donna asks if this means Liz is like a Silent Surrender (Nighthawk Island, dragon Perceptive yesnormal response no Donna s mother would like nothing than to see heraughter at the local University of Dayton working towards a Single Searching degree in communications Apparently under the misunderstanding that a communicationsegree will help Donna learn to interact with people better lol But it s this unusual view the inability to present to the world what they want to hear that allows her to become such a sympathetic morticianYep Donna s great goal in life is to become a mortician Lets just say that a girl withdrawn after her father s The Marriage Experiment death becoming obsessed with a career in funerals freaks everyone out Freaks But seeing how well Donna takes to the job s unusual skill set how happy the job makes her clears away any stray thoughts of theepressing It also helps that the brothers running the local funeral home are happy normal and super supportive It was cool to see the insight into this career the book gave It really seems like it could be super rewardingThat is if you can get over putting the makeup on Greeks Baby of Redemption dead peopleAlso the afore mentioned best friend Liz really jump starts Donna s transformation Liz helps bring Donna back into a relationship with her Aunt Selena who is a witch Another sub theme of this book is aiscussion of religion Donna s family are Becoming Rich devout Catholic Thus Aunt Selena has been banned from the family because of her Wiccan religion While Aunt Selena s views on life may not be Donna s a big part of Donna s coming of In the spring of her senior year Donna Parisi finds new life in an unexpected place a coffin Since her father'seath four years ago Donna has gone

I m probably the person that cried over this funny compassionate book about growing up m probably the only person that cried over this funny compassionate book about growing up yourself and coping with life after the eath of a loved one but we all know that I am a huge weepy sap anyway I love character Activating Gods Power in Tin Myint driven stories and while this oneoesn t exactly go where I expected because it is also largely plotless with a lot of interesting avenues mortuary school classes for example left unexplored it also gave me a satisfying meaningful experience I connected with Donna s slightly off sense of humor her observations of the people around her and her freuent insights into her own life that still The Traps of Nonviolent Communication don t result in immediate changes in her thinking or behavior Donna is confused and sad and hilarious and very real Violi s writing is expressive and uniue and sheoes a great job conveying complicated emotional stuff in small simple ways There s some really great stuff in here and I can t wait to see what Violi Lost in a Good Game does next I read this ARC via NetGalleyThree years after her father seath high school senior Donna is still feeling the loss When she attends the funeral of a classmate s The smooth glossy prose makes this book go Supervision Today! and Self Assessment Library 3.4 down easily but I am not so sure that is a good thing There are four main strands to this story Donna s pursuit of becoming a mortician her strained relationship with her mother her love life and her spirituality The first strand and the only one that is prominently featured on the back blurb and summary is far and away the most interesting Donna s interest in mortuary science is uniue and the way the story takes us behind the scenes at a funeral home is fascinating and not morbid at all I was a little frustrated however that the story never truly answered the uestion of why Donna wants to be a mortician It seems to imply that it is just her calling and never reallyelves into uestions like if Donna s Tango Lets dance to the music dad had neveried would she still want to be a mortician This wouldn t be that big a flaw if the story itself had not raised the issue early on and then never Death and other Happy Endings delivered on the answer Donna s relationship with her mother is weird because both of the characters are written so unreasonably atifferent points and it s not always clear if the characters andor the story know how unreasonable they are being I remember being 18 and having terrible fights with my mom but the fights in this story seem to blow in out of the blue one of the characters will blow up out of nowhere or will seem to La hermana luna (Las Siete Hermanas 5) deliberately bait the other and then just sort ofissolve away because they love each other I never understood why Donna s mom came around on the issue of Donna being a mortician or if she really Trembler did andidn t just say so for the sake of preserving her relationship with her Bought Bride for the Argentinian daughter or the issue of view spoilerAunt Selena hide spoiler Have you ever seen those ridiculously cheesy but adorable pictures of Anne Geddes babies If you have anything close to a maternal instinct they re the sort of pictures that make you get misty eyed laugh a little and coo over the baby This was similar to my reaction to Putting Makeup on Dead People It s a surprising book about loss redemption and finding your wa I must admit I wanted to read this novel for the mortician aspect I ve always wanted to be a mortician I know it s morbid but I ve always had a weird fascination witheath so I was easily able to connect with Donna on this level I had hoped for of the story to center around the funeral home and actually putting makeup on خسی در میقات dead people but the focus of the book isn t really about that at all or even the job of a mortician Instead this novel focuses on Donna Parisi s coming of age Lost and forlorn Donna still struggles with theeath of her father and she must battle her metaphorical ghosts and learn to move on While I enjoyed this portion of the story I Distraction (The Distraction Trilogy, did find the narrative to be a bit too slow for my taste As Donnaeals with Ready for School different aspects of her life such as her mother love interests findi.
