The Girl From Home by Adam Mitzner (A Book Review)

You’ve probably heard a story or two about former students reconnecting at their high school reunion. And they usually have a happy ending, right? Well, author Adam Mitzner gives you quite a different outcome in his latest novel, The Girl From Home.


The Girl From Home by Adam Mitzner (A Book Review)


New York financier Jonathan Caine lives a first-class lifestyle. Plenty of money, a beautiful wife, expensive homes, and a multitude of material possessions. And he still expects to have more. But a series of devastating blows knock him on his butt and he finds himself back in his New Jersey hometown. Once there, he attends his 25 year high school reunion and encounters Jackie Williams. She was the prom queen that never gave him the time of day all those years ago. Readers learn quickly that Jackie’s life is in turmoil due to an abusive, philandering husband. Jonathan looks quite appealing to her now, a quarter of a century later. 

Mitzner brings you into the complex lives of these characters with ease. He takes readers on a seamless ride from present day to past months and back again. You will be eager to see what the next page brings as Jonathan and Jackie begin seeing each other. Jonathan’s not-so-distant past dealings are revealed as Jackie’s future shockingly unfolds. Already playing with fire individually, the duo head straight for an explosion collectively. Their lives are forever changed.

The Girl From Home was released on April 5, 2016.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
