This is the second novel I have read written by author JoJo Moyes and I want to state how much I enjoyed it. One Plus One is an interesting and compelling read, it tells of a family peopled by the ordinary of this world, a family, which is held together by the strength and dedication of the mother who at best is an inspirational character, and at least a cleaner and a single mother/woman who is not just a cleaner but also a bar attendant. There are two children in this family but only one is actually Jess's the mother figure, the other an awkward teenager of a boy who is someone she has taken under her wing, along with a family dog called Norman -- what is a family without a dog?. As you can imagine, the family does it tough most of the time, but ultimately good things do happen to good people, but not all the time. At the heart of Ms Moyes novel writing is conflict. tangible underdog conflict but also happiness and success, even though at the next bend in the novel, the happiness is often snatched away. This is what keeps the reader reading, 'the what happens next,' scenario and it is never dull even if sometimes heartbreaking. I sincerely recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys a satisfying, even an inspirational read.
