Sometimes being sisters doesn’t require there to be a blood relationship. June is a story of the family that we have and the family that we create. Beautifully written the story transports the reader from the present to the past as the events of the past unfold.
This book is heartfelt with a strong sense of nostalgia for the classic movie era. This character driven book has well-developed characters that you can’t help but become attached to, no matter how troublesome they may be.
In the present timeline, Cassie is lost in grief as she refuses to accept the fact that the house she is living in is literally falling down around her. She is ambushed by the outside world when she finds that she is the sole heir of famed actor, Jack Montgomery. Before she knows it she has a house full of people who may or may not be family.
Connecting seamlessly to this timeline is that of June and her best friend, Lindie as they are caught up in the magic of Hollywood that comes to their tiny Ohio town. However, things are not what they seem and the girls soon find themselves caught up in a conspiracy bigger than themselves.
I loved Lindie and June’s relationship. How they were both accepting of each other and willing to push each other to be better.
