Book Review: I Almost Forgot About You by Terry McMillan

Dr. Georgia Young's wonderful life--great friends, family, and successful career--aren't enough to keep her from feeling stuck and restless. When she decides to make some major changes in her life, quitting her job as an optometrist, and moving house, she finds herself on a wild journey that may or may not include a second chance at love. Like Waiting to Exhale and How Stella Got Her Groove Back, I Almost Forgot About You will show legions of readers what can happen when you face your fears, take a chance, and open yourself up to life, love, and the possibility of a new direction.(Synopsis from Goodreads) As usual McMillan delivers with fully developed adult characters with everyday adult problems. This story isn't a fairy tale this is a woman like you and me facing the same issues that many woman her age face. I love that she is handling things by herself and not waiting for a man to solve all of her problems. Mcmillan throws a few curve balls at you in this book and keeps you guessing all the way until the end. I definitely didn't predict that ending. I highly recommend this book. **this book was provided to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review**
