#BookReview: Questions I Want to Ask You by Michelle Falkoff

Reviewed By: Jessica P.
Publisher: HarperTen
Recommended Age: Young Adult
Genre: Contemporary
About the Book:

Patrick “Pack” Walsh may not know exactly where he’s going in life, but he’s happy where he is. He’s got a girlfriend who gets him. His single dad is his best friend. After graduation, he has a desk job lined up at the local crossfit gym, maybe he’ll even work his way up to trainer. He can’t see himself ever leaving the small town of Brooksby, MA. And he’s fine with that.

Then, on his eighteenth birthday, a letter from Pack’s mother changes everything.

Pack hits the road, searching for a mother he’s never known and a family he had no idea existed until now. His journey unearths questions about both of his parents that he never saw coming. And by the end of the summer, Pack has a whole different understanding of his past—and most importantly, where he wants his future to lead.

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: I wasn't sure what this one was going to be when I started. But what I found was meh at best and well really just not for me. 

Do I Recommend this book? Nope

Notes and Opinions: I ended up DNFing this one early on there was just so much nope for this one.  It is like a what not to do with being fat and being around fat people.  I mean this book actually said that it was ok to eat a donut becuase of how fit this guy looked.  I mean you know what I weigh almost 300lbs and if I want a donut I am going to eat a donut!  I do not have to be fit to eat the things I like thank you very much.
