Format: Paperback
I really liked A Few Kinds of Wrong. It's much heavier than chick lit, but that didn't deter from my enjoyment. I laughed, and cried and wanted to shake sense into Jennifer at times and felt every ounce of her anguish and grief.

Chaulk creates real characters that are flawed and confused and I enjoyed watching Jennifer try to pull herself up and figure out her life without her father. The relationship with her grandmother was touching and the complicated relationship with her mother and estranged husband I found intriguing and infuriating.

My only concern was the slower beginning, which I seem to be saying often lately about many novels. The flashbacks jolted me out of the story, but as I got further into the novel, I realized how critical they were. Memories, often misunderstood and altered by innocence and age, played an integral role with Jennifer's coming to terms with her father's passing.

Overall, I thought A Few Kinds of Wrong was a great book and loved the story. It was unique, full of East Coast Canadian details and had such raw emotion that made me squirm and shed tears yet also laugh and smile at times. I would highly recommend this novel and would most definitely read another of Tina Chaulk's books.
