Are you loving seeing all the book tours this month? I just love being able to share these titles with you, and am so lucky Suzy passes along the best books! Today’s book tour stop with Suzy Approved Book Tours is for new to me author Nancy Star, and her newest book, Rules for Moving.

. . .

From bestselling author Nancy Star comes a deeply moving novel about the truths we hide from others and the lies we tell ourselves.

To the outside world, beloved advice columnist Lane Meckler has all the answers. What no one knows is that she also has a secret: her life is a disaster, and it’s just gotten worse. Her husband, whom she was planning to leave, has died in a freak accident. Her six-year-old son, Henry, has stopped speaking to everyone but her. Lane’s solution? Move. Growing up, that was what her family did best.

But when she and Henry pack up and leave, Lane realizes that their next home is no better, and she finally begins to ask herself some hard questions. What made her family move so often? Why has she always felt like an outsider? How can she get Henry to speak?

On a journey to help her son find his voice, Lane discovers that somewhere along the way she lost her own. If she wants to help him, she’ll need to find the courage to face the past and to speak the truth she’s been hiding from for years.

. . .

An emotional story so many of us can relate to about the desire to move on, and how hard it can be. Have your tissues on hand, because this one will have you in all the feels. Star wrote an amazing character in late Lane, she was so easy to connect with, and I really enjoyed this one!
