I am not going to give a play by play or anything like that. The issue with the book is hoarding. Yes you heard me right hoarders! They are just now becoming known to most people. They function well in society but their home, care, yards, and so on, usually look like a dumping ground. The main character is a 19 year old named Star Collins and she was removed from her home because of her mother’s hoarding. I was really thrilled when that came out because it is so new that I just gobbled up the book. Star is very likeable for me as a lead because she is just Star and doesn’t care what others think of her.
So things get good really fast. I liked the way she never intended to return to her hometown, Avenue, but the minute she gets there is struck by a former friend. The diner houses a few very opinionated idiots who cause drama where Star doesn’t need it. The other lead enters
Ash Winthrope, the guy who was just released from prison comes into the diner and blah blah
She encounters him….blah blah
Here is where the serious issues are. So many reveals are added in small does except for the reason behind the hoarding. WOW it was big!! It is a meaningful issue that I know people will enjoy. The plot is well put together. The story is unique as is the relationship between Star and her friends from college, Ash and the people in Avenue.
Overall PLEASE read this one it will not disappoint you.

Sadie Munroe has been dreaming up stories for as long as she can remember. She is often found staring off into space, brainstorming her next plot, even when she hasn’t quite finished the one she’s currently working on.
It’s a problem.
She lives in Ontario Canada with her family and her dog Trips, as well as what some people would consider far too many books (they’re wrong).
ALL IT TAKES is her first novel.
