It's Only Temporary

I pushed the 'pause button' on The Hopkins Manuscript and took this book with me on my sub-job today. I started it when the kids had study hall, continued it on my lunch break and finished it when kids were having silent reading. All-in-all I spent about 2 1/2 hours on it. It's Only Temporary was even better than I remember it being. It follows Sean for his last eight hours as he travels to see his ex-girlfriend and reads like a rocket sled going down hill with no brakes. Unstoppable in other words. Just a fantastic ride where the outcome has been set out from the beginning. Closest I remember to something like this is 13 reasons why by Jay Asher. Highest Recommendation. Read it and right now!
