“One Two Three is the story of a town destroyed by the pollution of the town’s river by a chemical plant. A plant that still has not admitted or taken responsibility for the deaths, cancers and birth defects that are higher in Bourne than anywhere else in the country. One would think this would be a very depressing read but Laurie Frankel has written a story that is funny, quirky, totally original and extremely compelling. The main characters are Nora, whose husband worked at the plant and died of cancer, and her now 16-year-old triplets Mab, Monday and Mirabel. Frankel’s portrayal of these characters is what made this book one of the best books I have read. I was amazed at how she was able to turn what should be a total downer into a sweet, funny and charming story about sisters and family and determination. The voices of the triplets will stay with me for a long, long time.”Nancy, Fiction Addiction
