Wow! Camille Pagan, the author of “Good For You,” has written a heartfelt, memorable, and thought-provoking novel. The genres for this novel are Fiction, Contemporary Fiction, Women’s Fiction, Women’s Lit, Chick Lit, Contemporary, and Romance. I was deeply touched by Camille Pagan’s storytelling and writing. The author vividly describes her dramatic and colorful characters, the scenery, the events, and the plot. The author discusses the significance of losing a sibling and the consequences of emotional and physical abuse.
The author describes her characters as complex, complicated, confused, and determined, yet flawed. I love to see the growth in the characters. Aly Jackson’s sense of purpose is her job as an editor at “Good For You Magazine.” After significant cuts, Aly has a meltdown. Unfortunately, it is taped by someone. Aly feels that she has been betrayed. It is suggested by her boss that she take a month off. Tragically, Aly’s brother had passed away a few months before. Aly realizes this is the opportunity to take care of her inherited house, and she goes to her brother’s home.
When Aly reaches the home, she is astounded to learn that Wyatt, her brother’s best friend, is the estate’s executor and has also inherited the house. Aly is organized and very neat, and Wyatt is totally the opposite. Aly’s brother seemed to have a reason for this. Immediately, Aly wants to sell the house. She can’t understand how she and Wyatt can live together.
I love how Camille Pagan compassionately and thoughtfully deals with loss and living. I would highly recommend this amazing novel.
