Book Review/ Giveaway The Nobodies Album by Carolyn Parkhurst

Title: The Nobodies Album
Author: Carolyn Parkhurst
Publisher: Doubleday
Published: June 15th, 2010
ISBN: 978-0385527699

Summary: "Parkhurst returns with the story of Octavia Frost: widow, successful novelist, and estranged mother of Milo, lead singer of an up-and-coming band. Milo and Octavia haven't spoken in almost four years, but their separation ends when Octavia learns (from the Times Square news crawl) that Milo has been arrested for the murder of his girlfriend. In short order, Octavia travels to the West Coast, determined to find out who really killed Bettina Moffett."

This is a very good book!  I read a few of the reviews and a lot of them talk about the excerpts from Octavia's books that are scattered through out the novel.  I love the little book snippets.  I think they really go along with the main story plau give us a deeper view into Octavia's life and her story.  And actually I would love to read each of those novels.

I really feel bad for Octavia because she has been estranged from her son for 4 years and then out of nowhere she sees a news broadcast about her son.  If that wasn't bad enough, she sees that he has been arrested for the murder f his live in girlfriend.  In a burst of maternal instinct, she flies to LA to be at her son's side.  Upon arrival she realizes that not much has changed and he still doesn't want to see her. 

Octavia realizes that endings cannot be changed but that sometimes what you thought was the end turns out to only be a pause.  I HIGHLY recommend this book!!  Rate: Photobucket
