The Theory of Opposites by Allison Winn Scotch

Willa (a.k.a. William) Chandler-Golden is a woman living as peaceful as possible, or at least she thinks she is, but she is far from it! She believes in (air quotes) No rocking the boat! So, when her husband Shawn starts showing signs (even proof) of dishonesty, Willa holds tight to the fact that if she asks no questions, her life will stay safe between the four walls of their marriage. The problem was their life was growing beyond the four walls, and Shawn was trying new things without Willa. I was shaking the book, because I wanted to knock her upside the head. Literally! I am thinking “ASK QUESTIONS” Willa! So, this book had to be read in ONE sitting. Ok, TWO! I needed to sleep and wake up to begin again. Not happy I had to stop. LOL.
She grew up hearing that everything happens for a reason, when it is meant to happen; as her father dedicated his whole life to the belief that “you are where you are meant to be, when you are meant to be there”, he was on television talking about it for years after his book release. People were drawn to it, as if it were life’s very instruction manual.
This was a bit of a “Self-Help” Book for me, and I can see it being that way for many women…I mean, come on; you want to know something you (air quotes) rock the boat; if you want something you (air quotes) go after it…Not everything will just come to you. You will decide by the end of this book, which way you live.
So, when Willa’s life goes on a gigantic tailspin; she and her friend, Vanessa map out their own destiny.
This book is written for our times for sure! It was fun to read, as it had texts, facebook comments, tweets, etc. in it. It was exciting to read.
Totally amusing Beach Read! Go get it and find out if you stay in a marriage that was supposed to be, or leave it to go for something you want more.
