This Is How It Ends

Kathleen MacMahon

A warm love story with an unusual and honest heroine who is both recognizable and believable. Also features a grumpy, impossible but still rather lovable old dad as well as a fabulous older sister, a swimming dog AND a dose of Bruce Springsteen. Makes a good case for living and enjoying life when you can! Found it hard to put down and wished for more.

Extract

You're just about to slip off. But just at that moment, the band starts playing your favourite song. Not just a song you're fond of but your favourite song ever, the one that always makes you feel like dancing. The one that makes you forget all your troubles and makes you want to live. You stand there in the door and you don't know what to do. Do you stay or do you go?
That's where Addie was when she met Bruno.
