The One Plus One
on 23 November 2016
This is a very different book to Jojo's usual, really good nonetheless.
Story of an IT Geek Ed who gets involved in a financial scandal meeting Jess, his cleaner/barmaid struggling to make ends meet, two unlikely candidates for love but fate has other ideas. They embark on a road journey to Scotland with Jess's daughter Tanzie (a Maths genius), Nicky , a Goth and Norman, their big sloppy, drooling, smelly dog. What unfolds is a road journey which has me me laughing out loud along with some more serious moments when the the local bullies, the Fischers attack Nicky or Tanzie. In the end a mistake made by Jess which was done in desperation results in this cosy setup unraveling and the question is whether Ed and Jess can get past it?
A lovely story about how love can sometimes be found in the most unlikeliest of places
