Talk of the Town by Lisa Wingate~ A Book Review by Michelle Pell

Lisa Wingate is a inspirational speaker, magazine columnist, and bestselling author of multiple books. The first book in her “Daily, Texas” series, Talk of the Town, contains important life lessons. The book portrays a small town that doesn't seem like much, but when all the townspeople band together to help a young girl, amazing things can happen.

Everyone knows that to make a good story there needs to be conflict. And boy, does this book have conflict. One of the main characters, Mandalay, feels like her life is going okay when all of a sudden life hits her with one problem after another.

An aspect of the book which I really like is how the author writes the story from two different people's points of view: one, an elderly resident of Daily, the other, a young, aspiring TV producer.

You can really get involved in this book because of how the author makes the characters people to whom you can relate. Whether you're a young girl trying to help her family, a young woman not knowing exactly what to do with her life, or an elderly woman thinking her life is almost over but finding out it could be just beginning.

I'm sure that as soon as you read this book, you won't be able to wait to get the next one, just like me.
