Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Author Jason Rosensteel's 7 Potter's Road is a work of fiction in the family life and interpersonal drama sub-genres. Set in a very topical sociocultural and political climate, the novel examines the daily life and desperate need for a vacation of what might be termed a ‘typical’ American family. With the clock ticking down before the older children leave and the financial situation never completely secure, our protagonists snatch the opportunity of a vacation at Cape Cod despite the fact that the timing is far from perfect. What follows is a plot filled with wrong turns, challenges, and derailments, but one which may indeed bring a family together in ways they could never have imagined before.

Author Jason Rosensteel has crafted a heartfelt family life drama that stretches beyond the characters alone and paints a vivid portrait of the many uncertainties of life in the modern world. One of its obvious strengths, of course, is the commitment to character development and the relationships within the family itself, which I thought were well thought out and expressed intelligently through familiar, emotive dialogue and some intimate techniques of narrative. The plot of challenges and disasters which befall the family vacation is highly entertaining and well-paced, and it also serves to bring out hidden elements in many of the characters, allowing us to see them develop through trial and fortitude. Overall, I would highly recommend 7 Potter's Road for fans of high drama, family life situations, and intelligent social commentary.
