Book Review: Making Waves

The first book I completed from my Spring Reading Thing challenge was Making Waves by Cassandra King. This book is set in the south and follows the intermingling lives of several small town families. The first person narration changes from character to character, so you get slightly different versions of the same story. The changing narration also had me changing my "allegiance" so to speak, to some of the characters. I would form an opinion of someone from one narration, and then when that person "spoke" and told the story from their point of view, my opinion would change. It was interesting and made an otherwise simple story with pretty straightforward characters more intriguing. Kind of funny to see how a person thought of themselves and how others thought of them. The ending was a little like taking a nice drive and then finding yourself on a dead-end just wrapped up and didn't leave much for us to think about. I will recommend this book for a cute, funny, light summer read, especially if you are from the south (you will recognize people you know lol.)


  1. This sounds fun. I'm not from the south but I have family by marriage there now. So I might see people I know slightly? :-)

  2. Hi Julie,
    I like what you have done with your blog. I am trying to add you into my friends list over as hsb, but so far am having no luck. I just cannot figure out the code. Will keep trying though!


Thanks for stopping by!
