The Rest of Her LifeLeigh and Gary live in a small town in Kansas with their two children, Kara and Justin. While Leigh has always had a good relationship with her son, she just doesn’t understand Kara. Leigh has tried to give Kara everything that Leigh didn’t have as a girl growing up, but it just isn’t enough. When Kara is involved in a tragic accident, Leigh must figure out how to reach her daughter, or risk losing her altogether.

This was a great family fiction book. It’s reminiscent of Jodi Picoult, but I think Moriarty does a better job writing about the family dynamics. Piccoult tends to over dramatize the parent-child relationship, while Moriarty portrays a more realistic view of family life. This is Moriarty’s second book, and I’m looking forward to reading more by her in the future.
