Binding Arbitration by Elizabeth Marx
5 out of 5 stars
556 Book Chicks thinks this is the best book read all year...
I have not been this excited about a book in a very long time. I was texting and calling (people that read of course) telling them to read this book. This book just did something to my spirit. Seriously, it changed me!
**Read the Prequel - Cutters vs. Jocks - before reading this novel**
There is soooo much that I LOVED about this book! So many things that were right. I have never cried so much over a book before - happy and sad tears! I am convinced this book is based on a true story. There is absolutely no way Elizabeth Marx sat down and wrote this book without having lived some of this. Or she is just Brilliant and knows how to write one hell of a book! This book was so good to me, I don't even know how to express it in a review. I'm kind of speechless! WOW!
What we loved about this book...EVERY-freaking-THING! I was already #TeamAidan before reading this book, and Binding Arbitration just made me fall more in love with Aidan. I loved how Elizabeth came in thinking she was going to be in control of the situation and Aidan shut her down. It was about time she played by his rules and let him be in charge...maybe things would go right for them this time around. I loved how Aidan jumped right in to be Cass father. He brought a bigger car (that Cass picked out), he brought baseball equipment...he just went full throttle with Cass and I freaking loved every minute of it. And I loved Cass - there is not another kid written in a book that can touch Cass. He is the best 6 year old ever!
Seriously just writing this review is making me want to read this book again! (Sighs)
I have so many favorite parts...like when Aidan went to talk to his mom and dad and they were role playing, or when Aidan punched Libby's boss because he was being too touchy with her, or when Cass asked Aidan to kiss Libby more so she would stop kissing him so much. I promise you will not be disappointed with this book. There is so much love radiating off this book, you will have the after glow after reading it. Even in the sad times there is a rainbow waiting at the end.
***WARNING*** Please have tissue close by because you never know when you will cry!
