Read full description of the books Mile 21:I was drawn into this story and I was feeling the emotions right along with Abish. Abish married young and was widowed less than a year later. At 21, she finds herself back in the singles scene at BYU-I. She's trying to cope with her grief and be self-sufficient, yet she doesn't feel she fits in anywhere--not with the marrieds, not with the singles. She doesn't want to accept help, which I can relate to--I hate asking for help. She is trying to come to terms with gospel truths and how they can still apply to her and many questions are raised; questions that she feels require a footnote, however, no footnotes are given.
Abish came off across as very independent and almost abrasive at times--she was very snarky and sarcastic. Her history unfolds during the course of the story--it's not all given up front. For me, that worked well. I kept wondering at the hints given and kept turning the pages to find out what she had endured.
Bob was great!! He's got a past himself, but he chooses to deal with things much differently. I love how accepting he is, even with the verbal darts thrown at him.
The descriptions of a singles ward and the people there was a lot of fun. I loved the Bishop and how he handled things and Shelley was awesome. The marathon scene brought tears to my eyes. I really appreciated that there was an epilogue. I love things to be wrapped up.
Content: talk of making out; religious stuff; clean.
