    What a great book! Samantha and Jase were absolutely adorable, good, hardworking, very mature 17 year olds. The Garrett brood were so cute and hilarious particularly little George. This story will teach you the importance of family, friendship, love, and doing the right thing. Being truthful even if it means to lose what you love and that some people are willing to stick by you no matter what. I would have given this 5 stars but I felt the end was somewhat abrupt. I hope there is a sequel to see how things turn out for Samantha and Jase, the Senator, the Garrett's and all the rest of the clan.

    "Very enjoyable!"

    I really enjoyed this! I prefer for my books to not stereotype Republicans, so I took off a star. The narrator did a great job!

    Story
    "Really Adored the Garrett's..."
    If you could sum up My Life Next Door in three words, what would they be?

    Loved the Garrett's


    What other book might you compare My Life Next Door to and why?

    None. I'm just starting to get contemporary more, so I have no comparisons yet.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Only thing that I disliked about the performance was how "breathy" the narrator was. Other than that, it wasn't bad. It did help me get through the book, especially some of the slower parts of the book.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A wonderfully chaotic, happy mess!


    Any additional comments?

    Very much worth giving it a try!

    "Perfect."

    Such a great story for any age. Loved these characters. Didn't want the book to end. Loved George and all the chaos next door.

    Story
    "I've had better"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The book itself wasn't bad, it just wasn't that good. I didn't enjoy the narration very much. I don't really know who this would appeal to more.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Most interesting...hmmm. Probably for me the outsiders view of people with large families. I come from a family of five kids, so not quite as big as the family in this story, but I remember being surprised in school when I told people how many siblings I had and them commenting that it was a lot. But we never really got comments from others like this family did, although I have close friends who have had that experience with their six kids. The least interesting to me... I guess maybe her relationship with her shallow little best friend. And I cringed every time they said her name. Nan, Nano, Nanny...ugh, sorry but it was annoying the way they used it.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Amy Rubinate?

    I don't know who specifically, but someone a little younger sounding and someone with a little more inflection in their voice. I thought she was a tiny bit monotone.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from My Life Next Door?

    A lot of the parts with Nan.
