The Story of Plan B by Kate Dempsey

This is a zippy little tale that is full of indecision and heartbreak.  Over all it is pretty upbeat but has some moments where you want to tear your hair out based on character’s actions.  Sometimes the narrative gets a bit slow but overall it is enjoyable to read.  I like the main character, Zoe and empathize with her lack of being able to control her own life.

Other than Zoe, there isn’t a lot of unnecessary character analysis and you are allowed to get to know them individually just as you would any real life friend.  The author doesn’t push character flaws, weakness or advantages at you and allows you to make up your own mind. 

The plot is slow at times but mostly it moves along.  Even in the dark times, Zoe is as upbeat as she can be and seems to maintain a positive attitude about things and the people around her.  I thought she was a very likable persona and I think we could be friends. 

I recommend this book for its story line and possibilities.
