Once someone told me that could do an excellent impression of me. That took me by surprise. I don’t even think I could do an impression of me. I said, “Okay?”
He said, “Why, why, why?”
I guess he had me pegged. I do question everything. For me life is a mystery. I have so many questions, but I guess the big one is why am I here. But, then, a string of other questions arises from that one.

Jessica Lost Her Wobble by J. Schlenker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book, Jessica Lost Her Wobble is one of those books where you just want to know more and more about the main character. The book doesn’t disappoint. A full life of memories, regrets, pains and love all wrapped up into one amazing book.
Jessica is middle aged when she moves to the island. The same island that she had taken her children, Josh and Gina to for vacations and retreats when they were small. She has seen a lot in her life and she has survived with a subtle sense of humor that makes me smile. Perhaps it is her British sense of humor that is too dry, but when she finds someone that appreciates it she is so happy.
When she moves to the island to live a life of solitude and quiet, she surprises herself by making friends with a young woman, Amy. Amy also lives on the island year round with her grandmother.
It is an unexpected friendship but what it brings to Jessica is a non-judgmental person that listens well and is interested in hearing her story. Meeting and becoming friends with Amy allows Jessica to address her life face to face. Something she has attempted to avoid in the past.
There are so many depths to this book. I can’t say enough about its ability to draw the reader in and make them feel as if it is just as important that we hear this story as it is for Jessica to finally tell it.
I can’t even talk about the twists and turns that make this book so incredible. The twists are so forceful that you are caught unaware. That is an amazing aspect to this book.
J. Schlenker did a wonderful job in the pace of this story. You followed Jessica through all the ups and downs and you understood her. Until you can’t understand what has just happened. I can honestly say this book has everything that a book needs to endear itself to you and make it unforgettable. I can say, I will never forget Jessica or her story.
There is so much in this book to love. I am so thankful to J. for allowing me to read it. I totally got lost in the island life and Jessica’s life. It is beautifully written. Exceptional book. I would give it 10 stars if they were available.
