Roxie is quirky, neurotic, and has a strange obsession with the “high” life. The ode to shoes was bleak and annoying. She is strict about how she wants her life played out, but one thing she didn’t plan was a divorce. What she doesn’t realize is that this was her chance to do the things she’s been sitting around planning. The “good life” is the single life.
The list was bold, daring, and fun!
“I’m not gonna like you any less if you tell me what’s on your mind. If you ever have something to say, say it. If there’s something you want to know, ask me. If you’re mad about something, tell me. It doesn’t have to be complicated.” (118) Love Jake! He was a straight-up, honest, and caring guy, and what an amazing summer they have!
Funny and witty, The Good Life is a story about letting your hair down and having fun. A sweet, light-hearted romance.
