Crashes. Summer reading often demands a great story with lots of characters that requires some attention to detail, but never taxes a mind that might be dulled by a gin and tonic or two. I remained sober while reading Judy Blume’s novel titled, In the Unlikely Event. Over the course of two months in 1952, in Elizabeth, New Jersey, where Judy Blume grew up, three planes crashed in the community. From this true story, Blume delves into the lives of a huge cast of characters on the ground and in the planes. The result is an exploration of fear and possibility, a reflection on all the unlikely events that make up everyone’s life. I was entertained, and time flew while I read this engaging story.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
