Every Other Weekend by Zulema Renee Summerfield

April 23, 2018

Thank you for the copy Little Brown! 

Every Other Weekend is a realistic glimpse into life for children of divorced parents. It’s funny, harshly real, brash, and full of childhood nostalgia and dealing with first encounters of emotion. Summerfield writes in such a way that transports you back in time and tugs on those hidden childhood feelings you’ve repressed. 

Written from the view point of a young girl (8-9) beginning at the divorce that begins a life of confusion and a grossly disturbing life. I honestly cried through so much of the book, especially when Nenny aches and yearns for her mother. (Being a mother to a  young girl will do that to you...) She just wants her mother and not have to share her with strangers and I can totally relate. I hate sharing my loved ones. 

I don’t know how to rate this book because I never read contemporary, but suffice it to say, I like the way Zulema writes.
