Unlikely Friends - A Review
Updated: Feb 25, 2019
Summary: Irwin is not only the local Librarian; he’s also a book snob and an all-around grouch. There’s nothing he values more than his privacy. As a loner, he’s happy to be surrounded by books instead of subjected to the incessant blatherings of dysfunctional people. The one thing Irwin despises more than people is change. He’s content in his predictable, routine existence…until a young girl barrels her way into his dreary life and turns it upside down. Harper is witty, smart, free-spirited—but most of all, stubborn. Baffled by her need to gain his friendship, Irwin does his best to brush her off, but Harper refuses to budge. In fact, it only makes her latch onto him even more. Friendship, after all, can be found in the most unusual places.
Thoughts: Unlikely Friends by Sahar Abdulaziz is a satire and her recently published work. Wow! I simply loved it. I loved Irwin for many reasons, and I also loved the rest of the characters too. We get into all their heads and they are truly relate-able folks. One character that you won't forget is Darren. I laughed, I cried and I somewhat healed in the process too alhamdullilah. Abdulaziz's works while highlighting important social ills also show the unexpected kindness of strangers. Well done! Now, this book makes me want to eat some Baked Ziti!
