One thing is sure when it comes to Grease: the movie is filled with memorable characters. If the cast were to take part in this year’s BookSparks Summer Reading Challenge (#SRC2018), we think these are the books they’d go wild for.
Sandy would read How to Walk Away by Katherine Center
This instant New York Times bestseller follows the life of Margaret Jacobsen after a tragic plane crash leaves her injured in the hospital. Dealing with a difficult relationship with her sister and a fiancé who pities himself too much, Margaret is determined to turn her life around. How to Walk Away follows the journey of Margaret as she takes back her life, finds new love and recovers from a harrowing accident. This sweet women’s fiction read reminds us of Sandy’s sincerity and kind heart.
Rizzo would read The Favorite Sister by Jessica Knoll
A fictional reality show brings five ultra-competitive women together in this new release from Jessica Knoll. Sisters Kelly and Brett have just joined Goal Diggers, a new reality series set in New York City but what neither of them knows is that only one will make it out of the taping alive. Knoll’s new novel will have readers on the edge of their seats as they try to unveil the killer. We think Rizzo would love this because she’s constantly surrounded by women who love a little drama.
Frenchy would read How Hard Can It Be? by Allison Pearson
In the follow-up to Pearson’s bestseller, I Don’t Know How She Does It, Kate Reddy’s story continues as she struggles to raise her teens and rejoin the workforce. Restarting her career feels like the perfect choice for her family but when her teens begin to act out and her husband seems to be indulging in his mid-life crisis, she begins to rethink her decision. Looks like Frenchy, the beauty school dropout, isn’t the only one struggling to commit to a career path.
Marty would read Tell Me Lies by Carola Lovering
Lovering’s debut about finding love and the dangerous secrets that come out of a toxic relationship is a perfect summer read. Tell Me Lies is the story of Lucy and Stephen as they begin college and discover the way they feel about one another. Both facing tumultuous pasts, they keep dark secrets from one another that they both know would ruin their relationship forever. This novel details what happens when two people hold onto the wrong kind of love and we think the flirtatious Marty Maraschino would eat this book up.
Danny would read Providence by Caroline Kepnes
Jon and Chloe have a friendship unlike any other and when Jon is kidnapped, his dreams of being with Chloe are ruined but when he reappears four years later with no explanation and new powers, the pair will be confronted with things neither of them can explain. Simultaneously, seemingly healthy students are dropping dead, leaving one detective to solve the difficult case. Danny knows what it’s like to have his love interest unexpectedly reappear. Could you imagine if this happened at Rydell High? Grease would have been a totally different movie.
