Colie expects the worst when she’s sent to spend the summer with her eccentric aunt Mira while her mother, queen of the television infomercial, tours Europe. Always an outcast-first for being fat and then for being “easy”-Colie has no friends at home and doesn’t expect to find any in Colby, North Carolina. But then she lands a job at the Last Chance Café and meets fellow waitresses Morgan and Isabel, best friends with a loving yet volatile relationship. Wacky yet wise, Morgan and Isabel help Colie see herself in a new way and realize the potential that has been there all along.
I’ve finally gotten back to reading Keeping the Moon. As I’ve said before, the frost time I read the book, I didn’t really like it. But now, I’m really into it. I’m really liking the friendship aspect of it, and I think everyone can relate to Colie’s (the main character) self-conscious ways.
I’m so excited to continue reading!
