Marvellous, whether you're an adult or teen. Short enough to read in one sitting (provided you read quickly). Thanks for the recommendation, Ruth. Read full review

I absolutely loved this book. It was heartwarming, compelling, and dare I say it made me tear up a few times. Although I liked My Name Is Mina better, I absolutely loved this book and would 10/10 recommend. Read full review
