The Invitation – Keris Stainton

When Piper James unexpectedly gets a message from her insanely hot teenage crush Rob Kingsford, inviting her to their school reunion, her heart flips. She hasn’t seen Rob in eight years – and he’s always been the one who got away.

Throw in some old friends (and frenemies), a sister on the edge of a meltdown and a few too many cosmos and you have all the ingredients for a real night to remember… Will Piper and Rob finally get together, the second time around?



My review

I think it’s quite clear that nobody is perfect, but some seem to think they are and therefore are allowed to call people names. Do they ever take the time to consider how hurtful they are? No, of course not. To them it’s fun and to humiliate seems to be their second nature. Sometimes I wish they could be, even only once, on the receiving end …
It takes a strong person to stand above this all, be happy with what nature gave them and encourage people to do the same. To this, I doff my cap.

The book is about the importance of family, second chances and friends.
This story makes you smile but makes you reflect as well. 4 stars.

Thank you, Keris Stainton, Bookouture and Netgalley.
