78. The Space Between by Jenn Crowell
Gloria and Jascha have helped each other out as friends dealing with Gloria’s husband’s death from leukemia and Jascha’s family’s death in a car accident. They’ve finally decided to take their relationship to the next level when Gloria suffers from a mental breakdown and their decision to try continue with the relationship afterwards is further threatened by Jascha’s PTSD from the accident. I have no idea what this book is supposed to be. It’s far too maudlin to be a romance novel, but it seems too light to be much else. I didn’t really connect with it on any level. I give it a 5 out of 10.
