The Status Of All Things by Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke Narrated by Amy McFadden
Kate is 35 and is addicted to Social Media. It is no surprise then that when her fiance Max decides to break it off at their rehearsal dinner, Kate turns to Facebook to write all about how hurt she is and how she wishes she could do the last month over. Then something odd happens. It seems that whatever Kate posts on Facebook, comes true. When she wakes up the next morning, it is a month earlier and she and Max and still happily engaged. With her new-found power at her fingertips, Kate goes back in time to change a few things that will make Max hers again. When Kate lets her two best friends in on the secret and tries to improve their “statuses” as well… Kate finds out that things don’t always go as you hope, and perhaps it isn’t possible to really change fate.
What a fun idea for a book! In the day and age of social media I loved the idea of our Facebook Status being a way to represent the status we really wish for. With Amy McFadden as the narrator at the wheel – this was a great listen! The combination of the two authors is interesting but however they do it – it works! I thoroughly enjoyed this book on audio, it was interesting to see how Kate tried to make changes that would in the end be better for her, but some how the wording would miss its mark… a really fun listen!
