Overall Review:  

Minor Adjustments shows just how much one person can make an impact on everyone else around him. Devon is left with a young boy in a will of an Australian foreign exchange student. He flies across the world to meet the boy and the friend of the mother. The three of them struggle to make things work out, doing whatever it takes--from unemployment to returning to school--just to keep the little boy in a good home. 


Anderson has written a novel that strikes the heart and makes people think about what is really important in life. Stella and Devon must decide what they will do for love, and readers will begin to ask themselves the same question. This book is aimed at an adult audience, but is mild enough for younger readers if they are interested. I enjoyed the book and look forward to reading other books of Rachael Renee Anderson's in the future.
