Time Runs Away with Her

Time Runs Away with Her 

Book Review:

Rebecca Donohue is intriguing and a little strange. She is 16 years old, lives with her mother and everyone calls her Bean.

She has a rocky relationship with her mother who is bitter about her divorce. They are trying to find a new normal but clash at every step. Bean loves her guitar and to sing, but her mother wants some peace and quiet which leads to an argument. The situation escalates and Bean finds herself out in the cold.

Her best friend Suzanne has a boyfriend and an over-sharing mother. Bean is close with Suzanne but not her boyfriend. Zak is her love interest and she realises not being perfect may be the key to getting his attention. She finds herself at his door and wanting to get to know him. He's an artist and a fellow music fan. This book is set in the 1970's mostly. There are themes of sex, drugs and Rock 'n' Roll.

This all sounds mundane, but Bean starts to see glimpses into something special. A step in time.

This is a becoming of age story and the first in a series. The writing style is a little strange even by my standards. Bean is unique and herself. The story is addictive and controversial. 4 stars out of 5. I received an ARC as part of the Chapter by Chapter book tour for book 3.
