Addie had been let down by the most important person in her life, her dad, Alex.
When she assumed that the man she loves had treated her the same way, she left without saying goodbye.
Twelve years later Jake accidentally stumbled on Addie. More than that he has seen the daughter he never knew he had and now it is time for explanations because he will no longer be shut out of Josie’s life.
Addie has spent a lot of years trying to outrun what hurts and when things begin to spiral out of order she cannot help but try to get out of the way.
What makes this book stand out from the rest is the fact that it addresses many of our common fears as well as the issue of lack of communication. It addresses how these things can shape a person’s life causing them to miss out on the greatest gifts.
While this is not a page-turner there is a lot to keep the reader interested in this story.
There are several surprises as Julie Gardiner peals away the layer to let us see that you never really know someone else’s story.
This book is about secrets, fears, lack of communication forgiveness, and the ability to trust the important people in your life not to let you down.
What I Liked
I like the fact that the characters in this story are so real, and relatable. In Opposite Addie, Julie Gardiner shows that she truly understands how fears can truly cripple a person and cause us to miss out on the best of what life has to offer.
What I Didn’t Like
I didn’t like the fact there were moments in the first parts of the story when I really didn’t feel drawn in and engaged. I thought the story moved along slowly for a while.
