By the Time You Read This by Lola Jaye

Avon A
Available 09/01/09 in Paperback

When he discovered that he had only six months to live, thirty-year-old Kevin Bates picked up his pen and wrote The Manual — advice for his five-year-old daughter, Lois, to live by, laugh at, and follow from twelve until thirty. Seven years later, when Lois is given The Manual, she can barely bring herself to read her father’s words, the pain of his loss is still so raw. Yet soon Kevin’s advice is guiding her through every stage of life from teen angst to career arcs, to knowing when she’s at long last met “the one.” While The Manual can never be a substitute for having Kevin back, the words left behind become Lois’s steady support through all of life’s ups and downs, and prove invaluable to unlocking the key to happiness.
