Miles From Ordinary Review, Manic Monday and Indie Spotlight


“Together we climbed on the Peace City bus and road back towards my house. My almost normal feeling was gone. I was miles from ordinary now. Miles.”

This was a very suspenseful book which looks into the life of a family that has to deal with mental illness.

Lacey is her mother’s caregiver. Her mother is literally suffering from major mental illness. Her mother believes that the ghost of Lacey’s grandfather is helping them by telling her how to keep Lacey and herself safe. Lacey’s life consists of trying to soothe and talk her mother into calming down and trying to get her out of the bad place in her mind and bring her back to reality. Lacey has no friends and literally goes to school and straight home to take care of mom.

The whole story takes place in one single day. Lacey has convinced her mother to get a job so that Lacey, herself could have a few hours to volunteer at the library. The plan was set and Lacey made sure her mother would know where to meet her when finished and where to go.

Throughout the book, Lacey flashes back to when times seemed better. Her aunt used to live with them until her mother kicked her out and Lacey dreams of seeing her Aunt again.

Lacey’s day is not going too bad, she even makes a friend. Until, she goes to pick up mom and realizes that her mother has disappeared and she really needs to find her!

The book was a short read which starts off fairly slow with a huge climax at the end. The writer did do a very good job at painting a picture of poor Lacey’s life, giving up everything to take care of her mother.

*This book was a goodreads win.

Hi Everyone and I hope you all had a great weekend!

For those of you that had read about my lost wallet while at the Jersey shore, I can report that I have had an encounter with an honest thief! I arrived home on Wednesday afternoon to a package. Inside the package was my wallet, now granted they had taken all of my cash including the change not leaving me a penny, but then threw my wallet in the mailbox. There was a note attached from the post office that they had found it in the outgoing mail. I actually was excited to have my wallet back.

On to Manic Monday….

I originally was reading

but, I am finding it very difficult to hold my attention, so I am currently reading:

FYI…..Our local Borders Books is going out of business, my husband and I took a trip to the store yesterday and we found some really great deals. So if you have not checked your local store recently, you should. There are a lot of good books left, all 60%-80% off!

Before I start on the meme, I need to rant a little! My family/friends had taken a quick daytrip to the Jersey shore yesterday, in our travels, I had misplaced my wallet. My own fault, of course, but, I honestly believed that there could be some honest people left in this world, and maybe there are, however, I did not find them on the Jersey shore on Sunday, April 3rd! Anyway, so today, I am canceling cards, getting new insurance cards and trying to replace my liscence….YUCK!!! Sorry, I just had to complain to someone:)

My Answer:

I am going to start Unearthly today by Cynthia Hand. I am reading along with some fellow members of goodreads in a group that I am helping moderate. I am excited to read this book and have been looking at it for awhile, but just kept putting it on the backburner. I do hope that I can finish it kinda quickly due to all the others that I have to review!
