(123)Stash by David Klein

Stash is an interesting little story.

Gwen is your typical suburban mom. Two kids and a husband that works in pharmaceuticals. She is picking up "supplies" for their long weekend at their lake house. In this situation "supplies" equals pot. She stops off at a park to smoke a little before picking the kids up from swim lessons. After her pit stop there is a deadly accident and Gwen's pot is discovered. Setting forth a chain of events that may destroy everything Gwen has.

Told from the perspectives of Gwen, her dealer, her husband, and the dealer's teenage daughter, you get to see all sides off this situation. Even given the subject matter, all of the characters are sympathetically written in a way that you can not help but wish that the whole thing would go away for them. Gwen is a bit naive, but that is what makes her character seem real. Her dealer, Jude, seems like a good guy trying to provide the best life for his daughter. And Gwen's poor husband just gets swept up in the chaos of his life. Both professionally and personally.

Stash has a Readers Guide in the back of the book and I really think that it would make a good Book Club read. Especially for you suburbanites! *grin*

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
