The overall premise was good. The book itself, definitely long winded. The complete retelling through different perspectives was too much, especially when changing perspectives didn‘t always render parts of the plot much different. I did enjoy the vastly different character developments of the main girl characters. It could‘ve been worse, but if definitely could‘ve been better.

I‘m glad I listened to this one on audio. I‘m not sure it would‘ve held my attention had I just read it. This was a unique book & my 1st of Frankel‘s. I liked the 3 voice actors for each of the narrators but I kept mixing up the characters. I was able 2 follow the story. it‘s an important 1. The town of Bourne was quirky & an appropriate setting. I enjoyed the ending! there‘s a bonus conversation w/ Frankel on audiobook cd which was informative.

This book couldn‘t be more relevant to my life. I just took Environmental Law last semester and my husband has cancer from an environmental disaster. So much wrong with the legal details but the cathartic, a reminder that the fight is worth it. It was probably just the book I needed, even if it was hard.

This is the rare case for me of liking the 3 main characters more than maybe even the plot itself. The book alternates between the perspectives of 3 sisters (triplets), each with her own very distinct voice. They refer to each other by their birth order, hence the title of the book. I liked Two‘s chapters the best, but they‘re all great. The story itself maybe dragged at times, but overall I recommend this book if you like a good people story.

lynneamch I just finished the audio and enjoyed it. Good author interview at the end. Folks here in Tennessee are still trying to get compensation for a toxic ash spill many years ago, so that aspect felt close to me. 11mo

Mabs, Monday, and Mirabelle are teen triplets living in a town profoundly impacted by the reckless greed of a chemical company, including Mirabelle‘s cerebral palsy. The study of those remaining in the town is sensitively done and the story is enjoyable with a satisfying (though not too realistic) climax. Frankel gives voice in her books to those who don‘t always get their stories told, and I love that.

I really liked this story, it was very intriguing, but also Frankel just wrote beautiful prose from the voices of three 16 years old. This book has a little bit of everything for everyone, that will keep you wanting more until the very last page.

I love the idea of teenage environmental activists fighting a corrupt and ableist company. But Frankel‘s execution of this concept was a struggle for me. I‘m not a YA reader and this felt so YA. The inner and outward dialogue seemed like an adult‘s idea of how teens talk, which got tiresome. Glad I hung in for the (kinda unrealistic) ending, though.

MicheleinPhilly That‘s a shame. I loved her last one. 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @MicheleinPhilly I did too. But YMMV - this one is getting lots of love here. Just wasn‘t for me … 2y

I can‘t quite classify this original story, but I loved it—mainly because I loved this sisters who tell the story.

#OneTwoThree #LaurieFrankel #BookBingo

This is a heartwarming story of 3 teenage sisters who live in the tiny town of Bourne. Mabs is sister #1 and she is normal. Monday, sister #2, is on the aspergers spectrum. Mirabel, sister #3, is brilliant but in a wheelchair and she cannot speak but uses a robotic speech synthesizer. 17 years ago, Bourne was national news when its water turned green and was declared unfit for use.

EadieB Nora, the triplets mother, is suing the company but they are about to start up again. The triplets are good narrators and memorable characters. The book makes you laugh-out-loud on one page and you will need a tissue on the next page. Frankel is an excellent writer and I will be checking out some of her other books. Thanks to LibraryThing and Henry Holt Co. for a free book for an honest review. 2y
EadieB I also got the audiobook from NetGalley and MacMillian audio and followed along with the book. The narrator for the audio was very good too! 2y
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 2y

In the small, fictional town of Bourne life has been stagnant for 17 years. That‘s when the chemical company that dumped poison into the land and water shut down and left town. Many of the residents died and those who didn‘t bore children with severe birth defects and/or on the spectrum. When the company threatens to come back and resume operation, three affected sisters (triplets) find a way to permanently closed them down.

BarbaraBB Sounds very good! 2y

This story follows three sisters born into a town where people have medical problems due to contamination from a local chemical plant.

I enjoyed the three different POV's of the sisters as they tell the story. Parts of this felt very YA, which I wasn't a big fan of, but when you're main characters are teens you expect that.

Overall, I enjoyed it. It was a quick, entertaining read with likeable characters.

#NetGalley #AudioARC This is a really hard book to describe. It doesn‘t fit neatly into any box and I‘m sure that was author Laurie Frankel‘s intention. Years ago a terrible environmental disaster occurred in the quiet town of Bourne. Three sisters, triplets set out to make sure it won‘t happen again. Overall I enjoyed this book however, when the story entered angsty YA territory (and it was VERY OFTEN) I found the story/dialogue cringey.

ErikasMindfulShelf Listening to this right now. 2y
Cinfhen How are you liking it so far @ErikasMindfulShelf ??! Since I really enjoyed the author‘s previous book, I was expecting more from this new book. 2y

ErikasMindfulShelf I haven‘t read her previous book. I‘m not quite sure how I feel about it. I‘m about 1/3 in and it‘s okay but I‘m not eager to get back to listening to it. I‘ll definitely finish it but won‘t be a favorite. 2y
Cinfhen Yeah/ it was a bit of a chore @Erika13137 not my favorite either 😉 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage I struggled with this one too. Glad to know it wasn‘t just me, since it‘s getting some love around here. If it hadn‘t been an ARC, I would have DNFd. 2y
Cinfhen Same @BarbaraTheBibliophage it was pretty weak, especially after enjoying 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Cinfhen Yeah I loved her last book and was so excited for this one. Sad it didn‘t turn out well for my reading preferences. 🥲 2y

Started this the other day #AudioARC #NetGalley not sure what I think yet - hard to describe genre - a set of teenage triplets who live with their widowed mom in a town outside of New England where some sort of environmental disaster has occurred.

⭐⭐⭐⭐/5
This one started out slow but then the Mitchell sisters won me over! This is a heartbreaking story for the small town of Bourne but it is a strong town and the triplets will prove just how strong when pushed! Loved this book and recommend it! On sale June 2021
