At the age of twenty-nine, Hannah Martin still has no idea what she wants to do with her life. She has lived in six different cities and held countless meaningless jobs since graduating college, but on the heels of a disastrous breakup, she has finally returned to her hometown of Los Angeles. To celebrate her first night back, her best friend, Gabby, takes Hannah out to a bar—where she meets up with her high school boyfriend, Ethan.
It’s just past midnight when Gabby asks Hannah if she’s ready to go. Ethan quickly offers to give her a ride later if she wants to stay.
What happens if she leaves with Gabby?
What happens if she leaves with Ethan?
In concurrent storylines, Hannah lives out the effects of each decision. Quickly, these parallel universes develop into surprisingly different stories with far-reaching consequences for Hannah and the people around her, raising questions like: Is anything meant to be? How much in our life is determined by chance? And perhaps most compellingly: Is there such a thing as a soul mate?
Hannah believes there is. And, in both worlds, she believes she’s found him.
'The only word that I can think of is BRILLIANT!! I really don't have enough words to describe how powerful, moving, uplifting, and gripping this book is. Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid maybe one of my favorite Summer Reads of 2015!! Scratch that, I don't think maybe is the right word...Maybe in Another Life is definitely one of my favorite Summer Reads of 2015. This is the first book that I have read from this author and definitely won't be my last. Maybe in Another Life was an addicting, fresh, heartwarming, emotional, heart-tugging, and beautiful book that dealt with the everyday question we all face at some moment in our lives. The question of what if? What if we chose this path? What if I was meant to meet this person? But with the question of what ifs...also correlates with the possibility of maybe. Maybe your life was suppose to turn out the way it was. Maybe you weren't meant to be with that person. Or maybe everything was meant to be this way.
