Honestly, I do read books I adore but this is not one of them. This is my least favorite Book of the Month selection so far.
Three young adult friends (Ellie, Chloe, and Rachel) are so discouraged with their lives that they wind up living off grid with Rachel’s boyfriend, Autry. I guess Rachel did it on purpose but the others definitely drifted. Autry’s plan is to live off the land with Rachel for a year in a family cabin to restore ‘health’. The plan is for The Project to be chronicled in a bestseller, if Autry can just start writing.
Nobody accomplishes anything or grows through their challenges in this discouraging book. I want to smack every character.
