It s a bit unbelievable to me still how books can sometimes completely blindside you You ll be going about your daily life a book will fall into your lap and suddenly it s the exact story that you need to read at that exact moment It s like the author knew just who you were and what was missing and came along to fill that void The Odds of You and Me was exactly that I wasn t expecting this book it simply showed up for review I m honestly so glad that it did I can t believe I almost missed the opportunity to fall in love with this bookBird s story is one of so many layers that it s almost impossible to really touch on them all in this short review What I can say is that Cecilia Galante isn t afraid to peel back each one of those layers down to the deepest part of the soul She allows the reader not even just to crawl into Bird s head but almost to become her I felt her pain her love her elation her hate her confusion and each bit of it filled in a part of my own soul I was able to pick her apart to the point that I was so invested in this story that I sobbed while reading it My life might not be a mirror to Bird s lord knows she has it much harder than I do but just seeing someone else at a place where they still don t feel like they have their footing yet made me whole somehowSee Galante doesn t shy away from the parts of life that we all hide from the outside world Bird has made mistakes she s grown from them but she also shows us that there is always growing to do Her character is one that uestions things examines her feelings and shuts things away She s basically any one of us at any given moment I ve never seen such pure emotion laid out on a page to be honest As an example Bird s love for her son Angus is so bright that it s blinding Yet at the same time she admits that most of the time she struggles to even feel like she mildly knows what she s doing as a parent Learning growing fighting it s all there in vivid color as Bird simply tries to exist in a world that doesn t always feel hospitable Nothing here is black and white everything is up for debate and I loved that than I can sayThere are discussions of love here and the tense relationships that we might have with others So delicate that they can crack at any moment There are insights about caring for others despite their past decisions and possibly stepping over the boundaries set by society to do good for someone else As I mentioned above there is even a discussion on being a parent and feeling like you re constantly floundering Bird s raw commentary on raising her son as a single mother and feeling utterly helpless at times will speak to a lot of readers out there Or if you re like me her battle with religion as an upbringing versus religion as an adult will hit home too Like I said there s so much wrapped up here that I can t touch on it all fairly It simply exists together in this beautiful web of a story that will catch you up and likely evoke feelings that you weren t even expectingTo sum it all up The Odds of You and Me is absolutely beautiful It s a raw emotional story that isn t afraid to dig deep into the emotions of a woman who is simply trying to navigate life I recommend you have a box of tissues handy for this book I really do
