"The Opposite Of Maybe" By Maddie Dawson
Rosie has spent the last 15 years of her life with her partner Jonathan, while her friends were off getting married and having babies her and Jonathan are merely ambling through life. Which up until now both of them seemed perfectly content doing.
After a series of rather unfortunate events Rosie decides that her and Jonathan need a break, while he picks up and moves to California she moves in with her ailing grandmother (Soapie) who raised her and the younger man (Tony) who may or may not be there to rob Soapie blind.
Discovering that at the age of 44 she is pregnant is just the cherry on top for Rosie. Now not only does she have to deal with finding a home for Soapie and keeping an eye on the mysterious and handsome Tony she also has to figure out if a baby with Jonathan is what she wants.
I love the characters in this book and their unique personalities and takes on life. Soapie and George dancing around to Frank Sinatra, Tony and his windshield parenting, Rosie and her students. Hell I even liked Jonathan and his weird obsession with tea cups.
All of them are at completely different points in their lives and yet Maddie Dawson intertwines them all in a seamless almost effortless way.
Maddie Dawson's "The Opposite of Maybe" teaches us that coming of age stories aren't just for those in their late teens or early twenty's.
