1 Book: Breaking the Bank by Yona Zeldis McDonough
2 Words: Magic Money
3 Settings/Characters: Bank ATM, Mia Saul - the down on her luck single parent who begins getting "bonus" money from the ATM, Patrick Fitzpatrick - she met him in jail. He believes in her while others are staging interventions
4 Likes/Dislikes: I liked the originality of the story line. It was unlike anything I had read before. I liked the flow of the book. It was a quick read, but it still had depth. I disliked how everyone was over the top upset with Mia. It made me angry at them. At times I wasn't sure she had done enough from my reading to warrent such drastic measures. I liked Mia's daughter Eden. She is such a child of divorce. Her acting out and anger was so realistic to me.
5 Stars or Less: 4.5
