One Plus One

Cover: 'One Plus One'

Staff Review: "One Plus One" by Jojo Moyes


I'm not much for a fluffy romance, but who can resist a story about a single mom, her quirky kids, their enormous dog, and an unsuspecting stranger trapped together in a tiny car on an impromptu road trip? This story is about Jess, an eternal optimist who will do anything to give her kids the life that they deserve. Unfortunately, fate has a way of knocking Jess over time and again as she struggles to provide for her little family. When her daughter has a chance to attend a fancy private school by winning the tuition at a math competition, Jess is determined to get her there. Unfortunately, she doesn't have a license, or a reliable car, and the competition is in Scotland! Enter Ed, the stranger who falls into their world trying to escape troubles of his own. As you read along on their journey, you'll have to decide who is saving whom! A fun read from a great author!
