These Days Are Ours by Michelle Haimoff
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I've always felt contemporary novels have a tough task on their plates--without the action, adventure, or mystery of other genres, can they be captivating? These Days Are Ours certainly captured my attention, or to be more accurate, I should say the characters did.
This is the first novel I've read featuring modern-day, upper crust teens from the NYC scene, and I found the glimpse into their lives and attitudes fascinating. What DO financially independent young people do after college? How do they find who they are, or what to spend their time on, when they don't have to work out of necessity?
Haimoff explores these questions with humor and emotion; her characters struggle to find the answers, and in a post 9-11 world, those answers are never simple or easy to find.
