Forks, Knives and Spoons by Leah DeCesare

I was tremendously entertained by this book! It’s a lighthearted story of two friends, Amy and Veronica, and their adventures and romantic encounters. The book covers their college years at Syracuse University and early adulthood. I too went to college in the 80s (yes, don’t count the years…) and I felt a nostalgic kinship with the characters as they navigated school, jobs, and relationships. I knew what I wanted for Amy and Veronica, and cheered them on as they remained unfailingly positive and determined to find happiness. While still young and naïve, their cheerful personalities couldn’t help but win me over as they matured over the years. It’s a sweet read that flows easily. While I was never a sorority girl and didn’t made a list of the qualities I was looking for in a guy, I remember the ups and downs of dating, and that time of life when finding the “right guy” seemed so important. I was hooked until the end. And it was fun being transported back to the time of landline phones for a little while.
