All that’s Left of Me

all that's left

This book really made me think about what I would honestly do if I learned that my wishes were coming true. For Emma, all her disappointments begin to crash into each other, starting with a continuously barking dog next door that mysteriously does not exist one day. This is after she wishes the neighbors never got the dog to begin with. Emma’s troubles continue: a sexual predator boss, an uncommunicative teenage daughter, an unsatisfying relationship with her husband, and the biggie-a son with cerebral palsy. Yeah, you can see the road she might travel but to what ramifications? That’s what got me thinking: what would the ramifications be of my wishes-what would change or no longer exist? It is a mind boggling thought when all you really want is for things to be different.
