When Life Gets in the Way

Ines Vieira

Release Date: August 1, 2016


A wise man once said that life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.

Cassandra Mackenzie had only one plan. Get into Berkeley, University of California. That was her one purpose and nothing was going to get in her way or sidetrack her from that one goal. Her life would finally begin once she moved from the quiet streets of Plymouth, Massachusetts to the sunny hills’ of San Francisco.

That is if her family doesn’t fall apart before she can make her dreams come true.

Isaac Silva never made any plans his entire life. His only objective was to have the nightmare he lived day in and day out, to finally come to an end. To Isaac, graduating wouldn’t mean college, it would mean freedom.

But when these two meet, all bets are off.

“When Life Gets in the Way” is a story about overcoming diversity and the grueling challenges that illness and violence can cause. But it is also a story of experiencing that one feeling that surrounds us all.

Welcome to our new reviewer Mary.

Compelling story of young adults dealing with very trying life circumstances.  Issac has a rough childhood and Cassandra has clueless parents. High school seniors,  Issac and Cassandra are not a love at first site, but a love through bickering. Despite their parents’ absences, they accomplish great things in the community which bring them together.

I liked the story and it was well written. The characters are engaging and sweet.

A heartwarming story of how they overcome adversity and become stronger people in their quest for love.
