Is she going to accept this? Or will she follow the advice of her best friend Vanessa, who persuades her to go to Seattle to work on a self-help book…and get this! A book about “resisting the inertia” and doing just the opposite of her father’s guide.
But is she really making a choice? Or is she just following someone else’s path? And when she “runs into” her ex-lover Theodore, is this, too, something she has “chosen”? What will happen to alter her view of life and choice?
We follow along with Willa on her journey toward a different kind of life, making choices that seemed impossible before–and just when it seems as though the old path is now available to her when Shawn comes home, she surprises herself by what comes next.
The Theory of Opposites was a quirky story that held my attention, even as the characters were frustrating as they stumbled along, imperfect souls that they were. 4.0 stars.
