The First Third by Will Kostakis

This book is bright, uplifting, genuine and real. Will Kostakis has a unique and engaging writing style that fills the story with vivid, lovable characters and relationships. This light read is inspiration, moving and completely enjoyable. 

Bill’s grandmother gave him one final message. Life if made up of three parts: in the first third, you're embarrassed by your family; in the second, you make a family of your own; and in the end, you just embarrass the family you've made. Oh and a bucket list and the responsibility to fix his broken family. 

No pressure or anything.

But with the help of his hilarious, insecure best friend Lucas and amazing but mysteriously absent girlfriend he may just complete it. He has to, because the first third has to end some time. And then what?

I recommend this read to anyone who wants to laugh and smile and think poignantly for a bit before laughing again. For a great story about the endearing nature of friendship and resilience of family look to the First Third.
