Who is Ginny Cooper? She is every woman who knows the exact number of calories in a Snickers bar, every woman who has ever struggled with her weight. She is every woman who has grappled with the gray areas, every woman who has wanted to escape her own life. At times the reader will want to reach between the pages, shake her, and talk some sense into her. But Ginny will have to navigate her own road. And through it all, we root for her.
Ginny’s childhood memories of her fading hometown provide a bittersweet backdrop for The To-Do List.
My Book Review:
Is Ginny Cooper running her life, or is her life running her?
Ginny Cooper wears many hats in her life: a wife, mother, daughter, friend, and librarian. Her daily to-do list is never ending, and somewhere along the way she has lost the sense of who she was, while becoming everything to everyone in her family. Between Snicker bars and Arbys, failed diets, struggling with her weight, and dysfunctional family drama, Ginny wants to escape her life, so she embarks on a personal journey of rediscovering herself and taking back control of her life!
In The To-Do List, author JC Miller weaves a realistic tale mixed with humor, wit, and sassiness that captures the true essence of one woman's life that many women can relate to. The reader follows Ginny's story as she struggles to be everything to everyone in her family and career, until she finally realizes that somewhere along the way she has lost herself, and decides to embark on a journey to take back control of her life.
As I followed Ginny's story, I found myself connecting with her on so many levels, especially my love of Snickers, Arby's roast beef sandwiches, making lists, and dealing with the never ending and unappreciated daily trials and tribulations ... damn JC, did you peek into my life? lol Ginny's story can be anyone's story, you'll find yourself shaking your head in recognition of some part of your life in her story, and you can't help but cheer Ginny on as her inspirational personal journey leads her back to her true self.
