A GIRL WALKS INTO A WEDDING
Anyone who grew up reading the Choose Your Own Adventure books is going to fall in love with this quirky, nonlinear novel. Placing the reader in the driver’s seat, Paige offers choice after choice, ranging from whether to initiate a one-night-stand to decisions regarding Elvis impersonators. Clearly, those looking for an involved story or a deep emotional journey should probably look elsewhere, but this wild, eccentric adventure is a great escapist read, packed with steam, sizzle, humor and enough outrageous situations to keep readers exploring every different potential path this book offers.
The action starts the week of your best friend’s wedding, and it is going to be a weekend that no one will forget. Thankfully, you are in control from the beginning, choosing your own path amidst the mayhem. From a hideous dress that inexplicably matches the tablecloths, to the stress of karaoke night, from the promise of a hot one-night stand to the terror of realizing you’re falling for the bride’s brother, the possibilities for this wild weekend are endless, and every scenario is exactly what you make of it.
