*Book Review and Giveaway* Eighty and Out by Kim Canobook

Traumatized by visits to the nursing home to see their elderly aunt, Louise and her sister Jeannie made a youthful pact to not live past age eighty. Was it a silly childhood idea, or were they wise beyond their years? Most importantly, will they go through with it when the time comes?

Eighty and Out Editorial Review:

“An emotionally-charged women’s fiction novel about the bond between sisters, friendship, and fate, Eighty and Out will have you deliberating your destiny.” ~ Bestselling author Deborah Brown

Available to buy from....

Barnes and Noble

This is a beautiful story of aging and friendship. Growing up around the elderly and seeing the effects of aging in action it can be devastating and could easily be something the younger generation wishes to avoid.

We see Lou grow and learn about herself and the world. Will she eventually want to live past 80 and see all of the what life has when you live every moment or will she just want to be Eighty and then get out? I can understand her sentiments as a child and loved watching her grow as she aged. The way Kim Cano develops the story and the characters is flawless and it's to follow all while watching Lou's story unfold.

If you're looking for a nice read this summer this is it!
