The Admissions by Meg Mitchell Moore

Gabe and Nora Hawthorne are living the life.  They both have successful careers, Gabe works with a Tech Firm and Nora is a Realtor for the upper class of Marin California.  They have three daughters and to the outer world this white-toothed perfect smile family with the right house and the right cars looks as thought they have it all…

Angela is on a straight path to Harvard (it is where her dad went!) her grades are exceptional, there is nothing in her way… but had anyone given any thought to what Angela wants, including Angela herself?

10-year-old Cecily loves to dance but one false move changes everything

Maya is in second grade and can not get the grasp on reading. Could this have anything to do to with the secret that happened to her as a baby?

Nora excels at her job… but her clients can be problematic and sometimes – sometimes,Nora longs for am easier way

Gabe loves what he does but a woman he works with could tear his whole world apart… should he confess what he has done?

 

Each of the Hawthorne’s have something to admit… and that is what makes Admissions a fun reading adventure. ~ Sheila

 

I listened to Admissions on audio and thoroughly enjoyed it.  The play on the word admission just added to my enjoyment.  It is not often I find a book title to be as perfect as this one is to the story line.

Listening to admissions you could imagine the anxiety this family had as they all tried to hold their corner of the picture perfect outlook up to standards.  Yet, as in most cases of what appears to be perfect or… those who appear to have it all – not all is as it seems.

I really enjoyed what I thought was going to be a story based mainly on Angela and her admission to Harvard, but it is sooooo much more. With each member of the family having admissions of their own, this witty read is one not to miss.

Narrator Allyson Ryan did a wonderful job of portraying the heart of this story.

  1. I loved this book…could not stop reading it…

  2. Oh man, I think there are a lot of families like that out there now. This sounds really good!

  3. I have heard such good things about this one; glad you enjoyed it. I downloaded it last week, and I’m looking forward to it.

  4. Heard good things about this and the audio sounds awesome but just checked on Audible and it doesn’t have world rights at this point so I guess it will have to be a book I read rather than listen to.

  5. Don’t you just love when a book turns out to be more than expected?

  6. I am just starting this book. Glad to know you enjoyed it.

  7. I really enjoyed this one. It didn’t hurt that my daughter is currently going through the admissions process (the college one, although I’m sure she probably has some other “admissions” too!).

  8. Sheila, you make this sound like an exceptional story! I will keep it in mind. Have a good weekend.

  9. while this sounds great, I don’t think cover would have grabbed me, so I’m glad to have read a nice review on it

  10. Thank you for the review. I will be looking out for this one.
