Guest Book Review by Rachel Quaill


A Page Turning Narrative Filled with Love, Passion and Pain…

From the first page you delve into the delightful story of two sisters and two friends that describes a tale of everlasting love and support. Lou is the main character and she definitely takes center stage in this endearing account of two young girls discovering their place in the world. The story describes what seems to be just an ordinary life in an ordinary town with two young girls secretly planning their future in spite of their parents’ expectations. Sounds pretty common but that is why this story is so relevant.


The author, Kim Cano, offers such a colorful explanation of life’s milestones that most normal young girls face. The journey begins with the sisters, Lou and Jeannie, visiting their Aunt Violet’s smelly convalescent room as kids where they make a pact to never get that old. “Eighty and out,” was the vow they made.  The journey then takes you through their angst filled teen years up to their inevitable deaths. In between all of this there is love, children, passion and pain. The twists and turns offer the reader a page turning narrative that will make you smile, laugh out loud, and cry tears of joy and sadness.


I am so glad I read this book and cannot wait to read more from this author. Her ability to explain regular ole life in such a descriptive and detailed way makes you sit back and reflect on how much life is worth. A definite must-read!

    What pack? I remember my brother & I made a pack that we would not tell our folks anything that would get the other into trouble. TFS.
