3/5 stars

There was an explosion in Chicago a year ago. It affected three different women in different ways. Cecily, the mother of teens, lost her husband and if not for her issue of being chronically late, she would have been in the building, too. Franny lost her biological mother in the building. And Kate, well it’s not readily apparent how the blast affected Kate, but we know that she lost her family.

Catherine McKenzie does a good job of weaving these women’s stories together. The chapters rotated which woman they were about and each had a unique voice. I identified with Cecily and thought her chapters were well-written. I felt that Kate’s chapters relied too much on dialogue. Franny’s chapters were all interviews.

There were a lot of twists and turns and things that I did not see coming, so I give this book a solid three stars.
