My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Disclaimer: I recieved this book as a promotion and in turn am reviewing it honestly.
The Cast by Amy Blumenfeld is an emotional story of the ups and downs of friendship. It is told by alternaing characters and revolves around the main character, Becca.
When Becca received a cancer diagnosis as a teenager, her fiends rallied behind her and created a video to cheer her up; twenty-five years later, they are getting together again but have no idea about the changes coming to their lives. Becca is once again facing heath concerns and her marriage is being affected, Jordana is only now figuring out who she is, Seth and Lex will reunite with all of its complications, and Holly will face unforseen chanllenges.
The characters in the story are well-developed and you get a sense of who each one is. There is a lot of information about Jewish life and those details are interesting. There is a lack of action after the first chapter up until the final few and I had to really push myself to keep going. This book might appeal to middle-aged women but it just wasn’t interesting to me as I felt it was too slow.
Recommended for those who are interested in Jewish life and stories that revolve around loss and grief.
