/> An unforgettable pairing of a college dropout and an eighty-four-year-old woman on the run from the law in this story full of tremendous heart, humor, and wit from the USA Today bestselling author of The Invisible Husband of Frick Island.

Twenty-one-year-old Tanner Quimby needs a place to live. Preferably one where she can continue sitting around in sweatpants and playing video games nineteen hours a day. Since she has no credit or money to speak of, her options are limited, so when an opportunity to work as a live-in caregiver for an elderly woman falls into her lap, she takes it.
 
One slip on the rug. That??s all it took for Louise Wilt??s daughter to demand that Louise have a full-time nanny living with her. Never mind that she can still walk fine, finish her daily crossword puzzle, and pour the two fingers of vodka she drinks every afternoon. Bottom line: Louise wants a caretaker even less than Tanner wants to be one.
 
The two start off their living arrangement happily ignoring each other until Tanner starts to notice things??weird things. Like, why does Louise keep her garden shed locked up tighter than a prison? And why is the local news fixated on the suspect of one of the biggest jewelry heists in American history who looks eerily like Louise? And why does Louise suddenly appear in her room, with a packed bag at 1 a.m.  insisting that they leave town immediately?
 
Thus begins the story of a not-to-be-underestimated elderly woman and an aimless young woman who??if they can outrun the mistakes of their past??might just have the greatest adventure… (mer)

Sweet story about friendship. Tanner is bitter. She was a soccer star at college until she suffered a major injury to her leg. Now, she is angry with her best friend and her family since she can't afford to return to Northwestern and her dream of playing. She takes a job as a caregiver for an elderly woman, Louise Wirt. What Tanner doesn't expect is a trip across the country, where she and Louise are wanted for a series of crimes.
This is a funny, sweet, endearing story of an unlikely friendship, with a lesson on how important friends are, and how they come through for you when you most need it. ( )

“Nothing in life goes according to plan. Nothing. And the sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be.”

Eighty-four-year-old Louise Wilt has a ton of secrets she has kept from her family for decades. A “life-changing” letter from an old friend, has Louise making plans to take a trip, unbeknownst to the rest of her family. When twenty-one-year-old Tanner Quimby took a job as Louise’s live–in caregiver she never thought her job would entail anything beyond driving Louise around and making sure she was safe and in good health. Tanner has had her own share of disappointments and has a lot to figure out about her future. After her college education was halted due to an accident, she was forced to move back home and was living with her parents until recently. Moving out of her home (though not voluntarily) and taking the live-in position with Louise was a means of raising money to go back to school. Never had she imagined herself on a cross-country road trip with the gun-toting, sharp-witted Louise whose life, memories and wisdom will motivate Tanner to take stock of her own life and priorities.

This is my second Colleen Oakley novel and I will admit I wasn't a fan of The Invisible Husband of Frick Island . Full of humor and heart, The Mostly True Story of Tanner and Louise by Colleen Oakley is an entertaining read. Both Tanner and Louie were interesting characters and I loved their interaction and how they eventually become friends. It was fun following them through their road trip adventure (I really loved their banter), meeting the people they encounter and the situations they get themselves into and of course, getting to the truth of Louise’s past. I liked how the author chose to end the story and I thought Tanner’s trajectory was well–written. Stories such as these are almost always predictable but what matters is the journey to the end and I’m pleased to say that I really enjoyed this story of intergenerational friendship and was surprised by a few revelations along the way.

This was a super cute book. I love the premise of the older lady who was a jewel thief. The whole "Jules" confusion was clever and funny. I didn't see that coming. The older lady had a daughter named Jules who come to find out is not her biological daughter. So when Tanner, the young girl looking after her...or her driver, says she saw her on the news and she was a "Jules thief" she thought she meant her daughter. Which, she probably didn't because she actually was the jewel thief. Cute story and I enjoyed it. I listened to it on audio. I also loved in the end Tanner did her own thing and didn't turn into this big love affair with Austin, I think the name was. ( )

A very entertaining read. I loved all the characters—a great way to spend time not worrying about the world. I will read this author again. ( )
