    Everything At Once

    Family events are pretty mad at the best of times, but put two together and what a weekend! That’s what you get in Save The Date. Focused on Charlie, the youngest of a large family, you see the weekend from her perspective. It is not only her sisters’ wedding, but the one that marks the end of her mothers celebrated career as a cartoonist. The family is an interesting one. It is a very close and loving family, with the exception of one estrangement. Early on you get the impression that there are undercurrents between the parents as well, undercurrents of which the kids may not be aware. The wedding itself is a bit of mayhem. The wedding consultant turned out to be either incompetent or embezzling and is missing in action. Half of what she did do has to be undone by the new wedding consultant. And he has a nice nephew too. The neighbors are joyous, constantly complaining about the noise, which is, of course, uncontrollable given the nature of the weekend. Everything that can go wrong seems to go wrong. Grant Central Station has been a favorite with comic readers for many years. Chronicling a barely fictionalized version of the family, it is the cause of the original estrangement with one of the children. When she mentions in the strip an embarrassing but funny episode in her sons’ life, even after his express request that she not, it sparks a two-year feud between them. Everything All At Once Now that the mothers’ cartoon career is coming to an end, of course, there must be much pomp and circumstance surrounding it. The papers are all wanting an interview as are the national TV shows and it just seems like a really bad idea to schedule it all on the same weekend as the wedding. Add into the mix Charlie’s personal life, school life transition into college, and it makes for a rather chaotic but thoroughly enjoyable novel. Reviewed for LnkToMi iRead in response to a complimentary copy of the book provided by the publisher in hopes of an honest review.
