Millie has a decision to make. At the age of 29, she must choose how her future unfolds. She lost her mother and grandmother to a terrible disease and has always known there was a high chance of contracting it herself. Medical intervention can change all that, but it comes at a life-changing cost. Ready for Whatever (The UnBRCAble Women Series Book 1) by Kathryn R. Biel is a heart-wrenching tale of a modern woman who has difficult times ahead of her. Millie must deal not only with the surgery and recovery but how it affects the people around her. Will she leave them behind as she becomes more dependant on her support group, or will she find a way to move forward and create a new life. Her emotions are thrown into even greater turmoil by Spencer, the hot British dad who is the total opposite of the losers she has dated previously - but will he also be pushed away by Millie and her inner demons.
This is a great book about a devastating subject. I love chick lit but I think that Ready for Whatever transcends the genre. This is chick lit with soul. Kathryn R. Biel has created an emotional bomb with Millie as her ground zero. Once the bomb explodes, the story not only focuses on the immediate damage to Millie but also how the shrapnel affects her circle of friends and family. Her best friend is unable to cope with the new Millie and her father is also deeply affected by the past and how it impacts on his daughter. This emotional bomb also affects the reader and I found myself howling with laughter and crying with sorrow at multiple points in the book. If you read this novel and are not profoundly affected by it, I suggest you book a surgery yourself as you need a heart! I am really looking forward to reading more books in The UnBRCAble Women Series. Yay for chick lit with soul.
