The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry


Book #56 Read in 2015
The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin

I have enjoyed this author's young adult books previously but this book I absolutely loved.  A.J. Fikry is a cranky bookstore owner, whose wife had died in a car accident.  A.J. begins to open his heart again when Maya, a little girl, enters his life.  By taking care of her, he saves himself.  This book is a book lover's dream...set in a bookstore, beloved books mentioned throughout, books used as a way to connect friends and family and a lively debate of print vs. e books are all included in this book.  Besides the books, there is humor, romance and even a mystery or two.  The characters are ones that readers will connect with and care about and root for...all while hoping that the book will keep going.  I highly recommend this one.
