At the reunion she comes into
contact with her past: Richard Slick and Marcus Dawson. Richard was
a high school nerd, and Aprilís prom date. Now heís a successful
software producer, and total hunk. Marcus is the man who took her

At the reunion, April realizes that
she has a choice. Both men express a desire to have a relationship

will be forced to discover things about herself, and about love.
The Life and Loves of April Johnson
is a beautifully written novel about the choices that we make in
life, and about being able to love more than one person. The
emotions in The Life and Loves of April Johnson hit me
hard, and made me feel exactly what the characters were feeling.
Aprilís choices, and the way she
handles them, propels the readers into her life, with all of its ups
and downs. I highly recommend The Life and Loves of April
Johnson. Just make sure you set aside enough time to finish
The Life and Loves of April Johnson all at once.
Because once you start reading you wonít want to stop.
