The Arrival of Someday Characters ☆ 2 Become a huge uestion mark threatening to drag her down into a sea of what ifs she’s desperate to avoidThen a friend from the past shows up With Will it’s easy to forget about what’s lurking underneath the lightness of their time together It’s easy to feel alive when all signs point elsewhere On the other hand with the odds decidedly not in her favor Amelia knows this feeling couldn’t last forever But what ca. This was very readable and poignant and hits you in the feels in various points I m giving it 3 stars It feels like a harsh rating for a book that pulled me in but did I love it enough to read it again down the road No So no 5 stars were forthcoming But why not a 4 stars rating you ask It came down to politics that got it docked a whole second star If not for politics this could ve been a solid 4 star read for me Here s the issue that authors need to understand we read to escape reality even if it s in a contemporary I loathe politics in my reads and I will always slash my stars for it s appearance no matter how minor the infraction I know I should just never pick up anything but fantasy of that s how I feel but I like a contemporary every now and then to cleanse the literary palate INow onto the actual storyEvery now and then I like to pick up a book that portrays the hard parts of life the dark things that happen that need to be brought into the light I read them to enlighten myself and so I can recommend them to others for the same reason I m grateful to the authors that are brave enough to tackle these topics in their writing We need books like Speak which deals with rape how it affects the victim The Sun is Also a Star deportation The Fault in Our Stars tackling life with cancer These are topics that suck but they also need to be heard And now we have this The Arrival of Someday talking about the desperation of those needing organ transplants the need for donors to save lives All books mentioned are great at portraying these gritty topics and I know there s many out there I need to read Will you need tissues Yes For books like these the answer is always YES I thought this book gave us a fair idea of the fear stress uncertainty of those in desperate need of a transplant But I imagine it s barely scratching the surface of that awful reality What this book is is a glimpse A little window into that terrifying world This book s job is to make us aware how fragile these lives are and what a desperate shortage there is in comparison to the number in need This is a book with a cause behind it And that is a thing of beauty As for the story telling itself it was well thought out and as stated earlier pulled me right in I loved Lia and her bestie Sibby Their friend dynamic was so supportive and fun though it had some hiccups due to things I totally adored Lia s goofball adorkable dad He was the best And Lia s back and forths with her brother Alex on Words with Friends was a funny and uniue thing to add into the story I really liked that touch of authenticity between sibs I used to do that with mine all the time Other uniue touches that I appreciated and found refreshing were Lia s hobbies roller derby chalk board artwork I ve never read about a character having such uniue tastes and roller derby sounds totally fun Also all the Aussie slang from Sibby was hilarious and loved every interaction with her I was seriously stressed out for the first half of the book when Lia Sibby were keeping things from each other but thankfully they worked out their issues and I enjoyed the second half much better for thatThe way things ended I thought was very realistically handled and really helped drive home the reality of this situation for so many people and the possibilities of how things can turn out for them It s a very sobering read but I recommend it Seriously have a couple tissues on hand though for some tough spots sniffles
