Surprise Me

A book review: Surprise Me

When a happily married couple realize that marriage means FOREVER and that could mean another sixty-eight years... What does this mean? How will they manage to continue to be happily married?

By Sue Kelly, School Librarian

Comments on the book’s strengths and weaknesses

This is a humorous yet moving portrait of a marriage, there are some funny bits but also some touchingly heartfelt moments.

Your personal response

For our 15+ students this is an insightful look into what a marriage is and how complicated marriages can sometimes be. It's an interesting plot that is a real page-turner. Some of the "Project Surprise Me" parts will really make you laugh out loud.

Give the book a mark out of 5 (with 5 being excellent)
