From the minute I opened this book I was captivated by Merit Voss and her quirky family. Merit likes to deal with life’s unfortunate events by collecting trophies she didn’t win. In addition to trophies, Merit has found herself a collector and keeper of family secrets. Eventually unable to carry the burden she makes a spontaneous decision to leave her family behind for good. But not before confessing each of their lies. When things don’t go as planned, she’s left to deal with the consequence of her actions and to repair the relationships that were damaged.
I’m convinced the social media “story” feature was created to take pictures of food. It’s so we can share what we’re eating in the moment without having to delete hundreds of food pics later. There’s something to be said about photographing a thoughtfully plated dish. My husband and I have gotten into arguments over him picking food off my plate before I’ve captured the perfect shot. He should know better by now.
