You’ll find yourself cringing at single dad Charlie’s missteps and cheering at his successes in Cristina Alger’s This Was Not the Plan. In the second novel by Alger, the story of a workaholic 1-Percenter who finds himself suddenly in a position he’s never faced before will make you laugh even as it pulls at your heartstrings. Alger’s writing is as precise as it is in depth; each word contributes perfectly to the story, and the relationships are complex, raw, and real, making this a bittersweet novel featuring exactly the right amount of dysfunction and truth.

Written with wit and humor, this novel has believable characters and a storyline that flows smoothly. The chapters are short, making it easy to take a break and pick up where you left off, but you’ll find yourself wanting to find out what comes next for Charlie and his sparkle-loving son. An uplifting tale, the story is of a man surfacing for air while being surrounded by people who’ve been handing him life jackets for as long as he can remember.

Fun yet emotive, this is a book I’ll be recommending to friends as a perfect rainy Saturday read.
