“One Plus One” is about life – real life. About how people struggle to make ends meet and will do anything for their family. All this determination and desperation to survive can change a person – makes you stop living life.
I loved this book because the characters were so relatable to what is going on in families across the country every day. However, despite these hard times and a whole lot of negativity, some beauty can truly emerge. It’s a beautiful story.
