Review: "Right Click" by Lisa Becker

Renee, Shelley, Mark, Ashley and Ethan are back in Right Click, the third and final installment in Lisa Becker's "Click" Series.  Six months have passed since we caught up with them last, and many things have changed. The group of close friends is navigating the choppy waters of adulthood and they are dealing with parenthood, long distance friendships, infidelity and marriage. Written in the style of e-mails between the friends, Right Click is hilarious and sad, sometimes at the same time!

I picked this up to read on one particularly lazy Sunday and by the end of the day I had devoured the whole thing! I love that Right Click is written in e-mail format. It's perfect for the secret voyeur in us all. I felt like I was spying on this group of friends that I have come to "know" from reading the "Click" series. I appreciate that as the series has matured, so have the friends that the series is about. The first "Click" book is about the friends in their 20's, but now they are in their 30's and they are dealing with so many different issues! Author Lisa Becker doesn't shy away from a few of the more difficult issues and I especially appreciated how she dealt with the dynamics of the long-distance friendship between best friends Renee and Shelley. The way that these issues were addressed felt realistic and I enjoyed the novel even more as a result.

I would definitely recommend reading the first two books in the "Click" series before reading Right Click. It adds so much to the series if you have gotten to know the friends through their previous adventures, and since there are some references to topics from the previous books in Right Click, it is not really a stand-alone novel. I will guarantee that once you pick Click up, you won't want to miss a moment of the series!

Funny, clever, and thought-provoking, reading Right Click feels like catching up with old friends! I definitely recommend not just Right Click, but the whole series, because once you start reading you definitely won't want to stop! I'm sad that the series has ended and I can't wait for more from this talented author! My thanks to the author for providing me with a copy in exchange for my honest review.
