Touching , adorable and sweet.
As a young women, who lost her father, I can really connect with the character and Jaye's writing articulates the love and bond between a father and his daughter.
Nearly, impossible to put down.
Well developed characters, beautiful storyline and bit predictable.
A debut novel that stays with you long after you've finished the book.
When he discovered that he had only six months to live, thirty-year-old Kevin Bates picked up his pen and wrote The Manual—advice for his five-year-old daughter, Lois, to live by, laugh at, and follow from twelve until thirty. Seven years later, when Lois is given The Manual, she can barely bring herself to read her father's words, the pain of his loss is still so raw. Yet soon Kevin's advice is guiding her through every stage of life from teen angst to career arcs, to knowing when she's at long last met "the one." While The Manual can never be a substitute for having Kevin back, the words left behind become Lois's steady support through all of life's ups and downs, and prove invaluable to unlocking the key to happiness.
