It's really good AND my book club friend's son wrote it!
It's being made into a movie (produced by Dreamworks!) and premiering August 2014. Helen Mirren is starring in it.
Either way I'd recommend it. It just makes it much more exciting that my friend's son is the author! Take up your space (and do it well).
