GOOD LUCK WITH THAT by Kristan Higgins

GOOD LUCK WITH THAT by Kristan Higgins

Emerson, Georgia, and Marley have been best friends ever since they met at a weight-loss camp as teens. When Emerson tragically passes away, she leaves one final wish for her best friends: to conquer the fears they still carry as adults.
For each of them, that means something different. For Marley, it's coming to terms with the survivor's guilt she's carried around since her twin sister's death, which has left her blind to the real chance for romance in her life. For Georgia, it's about learning to stop trying to live up to her mother's and brother's ridiculous standards, and learning to accept the love her ex-husband has tried to give her.
But as Marley and Georgia grow stronger, the real meaning of Emerson's dying wish becomes truly clear: more than anything, she wanted her friends to love themselves.

GOOD LUCK WITH THAT by Kristan Higgins

Eileen's Thoughts

Eileen: I was emotionally moved while reading Good Luck With That by Kristan Higgins. While reading this story I felt the story not only told the story of her characters but also described a scenario that affects most girls and women, of all ages, as they obsess with their appearance and the pressure of unrealistic expectations by societal, and possibly family, expectations. I was cheering on these friends who were supportive of each other, accepted each other flaws and all, and compassionate about each other’s struggle.
Technology, air brushing, and the media have altered how one can or should appear, along with the expectation of what body image is normal. Women need to take back the fight, embrace themselves, and love themselves for who they are. It shouldn’t matter what others think but what they think of themselves. This book is a reminder that we need to love ourselves, just the way we are.
Ms. Higgins wrote an amazing and emotional story that is not to be missed. I struggled putting this book down, turning page after page, not letting go until I turned the last page. I highly recommend this book to other readers.

Lorelei's Thoughts

Lorelei: “Do you know just how beautiful you are? Yes, you reading this. You’re beautiful inside and out, because your spirit and energy is where your beauty comes from. You’re kind, smart, generous and unique. You’re loved for all those reasons and more. Your beauty radiates from within. That’s what truly matters. You are perfect. Love yourself just the way you are. The world is a happier and better place because of you.” 
These words came to me the morning after reading Good Luck With That. I woke up wanting to share these sentiments on social media, but I saved it first as part of my review. When a story can move me enough to want to share these thoughts with the world, well, I say it’s a book that genuinely made a big impression on me. Powerful feelings and message, don’t you think?
The day I finished reading the the story, I had the biggest smile while hugging the book and my heart was filled with joy for the happy ending! YES!!! *Fist-pump!* Just like with all of Kristan Higgins’s books.
Good Luck With That is an emotional journey filled with friendships, family drama, tears of sorrow and laughter, but most importantly Love. Love and acceptance of ourselves, and of others for who they are.
Ms. Higgins brings to the pages the challenges, not only of self image and eating disorders, but also PTSD, coping with the loss of loved ones, health related issues and difficult relationships. I felt a lot of empathy towards many characters and listening to each one’s point of view was heartbreaking at times, and laugh out loud hilarious in others, only like Kristan Higgins can do it. Honest and enlightening.
Good Luck With That delivers a message for us to consider or reflect on how words we use to show our “love”, can either have a positive or negative affect on our loved ones, and it’s also a story about self- acceptance. One of the best books I’ve read this year. Powerful. Brilliantly written. Everyone should read it.

    I have only read one of Kristan's books but I have a couple more of hers on my list of books I want to read.

  2. I am not familiar with her books, but after looking up some of them and reading the descriptions, I think she'd be an author I would enjoy.

  3. I have read a couple of Kristen's books. I like The Best Man the best. I love the idea for this new book! I think every teenage girl should have to read it!

    • I’m glad you like The Best Man! You know I’m the baker, right? My name was chosen as a secondary character in the series. ? Kristan loves asking her fans for names and of pets, too. And yes, every girl/women should read Good Luck With That! Thanks for sharing and Good Luck!
