Fixing Delilah- Sarah Ockler

Title: Fixing Delilah

Author: Sarah Ockler

Format: Hardcover

Source: Borrowed

Rating: 4/5

Things in Delilah Hannaford's life have a tendency to fall apart.
She used to be a good student, but she can't seem to keep it together anymore. Her "boyfriend" isn't much of a boyfriend. And her mother refuses to discuss the fight that divided their family eight years ago. Falling apart, it seems, is a Hannaford tradition.
Over a summer of new friendships, unexpected romance, and moments that test the complex bonds between mothers and daughters, Delilah must face her family's painful past. Can even her most shattered relationships be pieced together again?
Rich with emotion, Sarah Ockler delivers a powerful story of family, love, and self-discovery.

Another great book by Sarah Ockler. This is the story of Delilah and her family. She leaves for the summer to go to the place where her family grew up to deal with the death of her grandmother. Delilah discovers what caused the fight eight years ago and why her mother is the way she is.

This book was unexpected, I expected something light and fluffy, but instead through Delilah's eyes I was sucked into the middle of the Hannaford's family. Throughout the book, we get a glimpse into the life of not only Delilah, but also the people in her life.

I was not a fan of Delilah's mother at all. She frustrated me so much, after we find out what really happened I sympathized with her slightly, but I did not forgive her fully for what she did to everyone and how she put so much strain on the family.

In Ockler fashion, this book left me feeling emotionally raw, I did not expect that at all. It was a great book. This book is so easily to relate to. Everyone has gone though emotional turmoil with there family.

This book is hard to put down, if you have not read it I think you should. ASAP.
