Sometimes, life can feel like a dramatic feature film with obstacles and hardships that present themselves without warning. And for Sara, a mother of four, her life resembles that of a dramatic comedy in Deryn Warren’s newest novel, Chick Flick. When Sara’s husband Joe unintentionally reveals he’s been having an affair, their seemingly average life crumbles, and without warning.
Sara, a film director, knows drama well. But right before they are to host a dinner party for his friends, Joe admits to having an affair. Bravely taking on this information, Sara must forge through the evening, fronting a cheerful smile while her head buzzes with questions and leaves her body writhing with anxieties.
Through twists and turns that make you truly feel for Sara, she attempts to win her husband back, ultimately realizing that her quest for normalcy proves detrimental to her once vibrant spirit.
With the help of her friends and the love of her children, Sara begins to cope with this devastating experience. And although Sara never expected she’d be the singular parent to four children, she reassembles their once happy life and begins to rebuild.
A surprisingly comedic novel, I found myself entwined in Sara’s dramatic life and rooting for her through and through. A great, quick read, this novel will leave you feeling empowered and inspired.
