Chasing Destiny

Chasing Destiny by Eric Jerome Dickey p. 421

 It all starts at a Starbucks. Keith is telling his girlfriend that he has to go back to his soon-to-be ex-wife. He can't afford to pay for his apartment and pay his child support anymore. Which is exactly what his wife wanted. His wife is a lawyer and knows people, which is how his child support payments are incredibly high. Since he can't find a job, even though he has a degree (shocking!), he can't make it on the little money he brings in from odd jobs. In the meantime, while the parents are fighting, Destiny is off trying to fit in. But she bites off more than she can chew with the crowd she's trying to fit into. The story follows Billie (who announces she's pregnant with Keith's baby) and Destiny as their lives intertwine and crash.
This was my second time reading this book. The first time I read it was around ten years ago. The plot is not very believable but the characters are. There are wayyy too many coincidences. They live in a big city, they are traveling to different places in the city, so how is it that everyone in this book manages to bump into someone who is related to someone else in the book. If you read the book you'll know what I mean. It wasn't a bad book, and it was entertaining.
