So last night I finished reading Roost by Ali Bryan. It was one of the best stories I’ve read in awhile. A first novel by this author. What is it with first novels? First novels join the group of other amazing firsts I guess. Including The first kiss. I was impressed by the honesty of the novel. I felt the emotions of the main character who is a single parent with two young children. I laughed, cried, and goofed up right along with her. I loved it!! A quick read but very satisfying.
