#BlogTour! #Review – #Breakers by Doug Johnstone (@doug_johnstone) @OrendaBooks @AnneCater

Another RandomThingsTour for you all this afternoon! It is a pleasure to be reviewing ‘Breakers’ by Doug Johnstone for the blog tour today, many thanks to Anne Cater for having me involved. Also, many thanks to Anne and Orenda for the ARC, here is my review:

Seventeen-year-old Tyler lives in one of Edinburgh’s most deprived areas. Coerced into robbing rich people’s homes by his bullying older siblings, he’s also trying to care for his little sister and his drug-addict mum.
On a job, his brother Barry stabs a homeowner and leaves her for dead, but that’s just the beginning of their nightmare, because the woman is the wife of Edinburgh’s biggest crime lord, Deke Holt.
With the police and the Holts closing in, and his shattered family in devastating danger, Tyler meets posh girl Flick in another stranger’s house, and he thinks she may just be his salvation … unless he drags her down too.

What does TWG think?

I have no idea where to begin with this review. I mean, ‘Breakers’ is like nothing I have ever read before, I’m not entirely sure I have the right words to convey my thoughts properly! I’ll given it a damn good go though!

Set in an area of Edinburgh which makes a lot of people wince should they hear the name, ‘Breakers’ tells the story of a young lad called, Tyler, who isn’t your typical 17 year old. Seriously. Someone of his age should be hanging out with his mates, not looking after his little sister and a mum who likes to collect empty alcohol bottles…after emptying them herself, obviously. Not only that, Tyler is stuck between obeying the law, and being on the wrong side of his half brother, Barry.

If I could guarantee that my review would be allowed on Amazon with many expletives, I would happily share my unedited opinion of Barry. However, because I know that the computer will say no, you’ll have to make do with this; Barry is a cactus. A cactus who deserves to be castrated and given a taste of his own medicine. I really dislike him….like properly dislike him. If he was on fire or had a jellyfish sting, well, I wouldn’t be urinating on him to help, that’s for sure!

Because of Barry’s stupidity and Tyler’s fear of getting on the wrong side of ol’ Bazza, the brothers end up looking over their shoulders in fear of crime big man, Deke, getting a hold of them. What would you do in Tyler’s position? Hes got to look after his little sister, keep his mum in check, and run the house so that social services doesn’t come and split him and his sister up. He needs quick money, is burglary the way to do it? Honestly? We all know that it’s illegal and immoral, yet it’s also something that some people wouldn’t do unless they absolutely had to. I can’t judge a situation I have never been in, but I will admit that I did look at both sides of the coin.

I can get quite emotional about things if young children are involved, and this book was no different. At times I felt that I couldn’t continue due to my own fear about what would happen to his little sister, but on the other hand, I was unable to put the book down because I was absolutely hooked by the compelling storyline.

‘Breakers’ is an incredibly dark, eye opening novel which highlights the lengths which people can go if they are forced, or if they have no other option. I was scared for Tyler, I won’t lie, but I had everything crossed that he would do the right thing and finally protect himself in the long run.

This is such an addictive, heartwrenching, dark and poignant read which held me hostage from the get go. A very, very impressive read – I won’t be forgetting this storyline in a hurry!

#BlogTour! #Review – Never Be Broken by Sarah Hilary (@sarah_hilary) @AnneCater @headlinepg

I am absolutely delighted to be hosting Sarah Hilary and her outstanding new novel, ‘Never Be Broken’, here on TWG today! Many thanks to Anne for the blog tour invite, and thank you to Headline for the ARC. Here is my review:

Children are dying on London’s streets. Frankie Reece, stabbed through the heart, outside a corner shop. Others recruited from care homes, picked up and exploited; passed like gifts between gangs. They are London’s lost.

Then Raphaela Belsham is killed. She’s thirteen years old, her father is a man of influence, from a smart part of town. And she’s white. Suddenly, the establishment is taking notice.
DS Noah Jake is determined to handle Raphaela’s case and Frankie’s too. But he’s facing his own turmoil, and it’s becoming an obsession. DI Marnie Rome is worried, and she needs Noah on side. Because more children are disappearing, more are being killed by the day and the swelling tide of violence needs to be stemmed before it’s too late.

What does TWG think?

Flipping ‘eck!!! What a book!!! I really didn’t want to put this novel down, even at 2.30am when I should have been attempting to sleep! If you’re after an addictive, fast paced, chilling novel to cool you down this summer, then ‘Never Be Broken’ will definitely do the trick.

Gang trouble is rife in London, and unfortunately for Marnie Rome and her team, they end up getting stuck in the middle of it, all because of Noah’s background and the way that he looks. With children dropping like flies, and murders being committed, Marnie Rome needs to get the culprits off the street before yet another child is killed. But is it that simple?

I won’t go into details regarding Noah’s looks, especially if this is a new series for you, however it was a shame that people were focusing too much on the way a police officer looked, instead of trusting him to do his job.

As I said before, gangs are thing, but until reading ‘Never Be Broken’, I had absolutely no idea about the lengths the gang members went to. It opened my eyes big time!

Sarah Hilary blew my mind with this compulsive, atmospheric read which, I have no idea how, just kept on getting better and better everytime I turned the page. I was hooked, completely hooked. Yeah, some of the content is pretty savage due to the theme of the book, but it gave the overall storyline a realistic feel to it.

‘Never Be Broken’ is, without a doubt, one of my top reads of 2019, simply because it is absolutely outstanding. I loved every single thing about the book and, whilst there were a lot of unsavoury characters, they all kept me on my toes with the brilliant psychological element of the book. Honestly, I cannot recommend this enough.

#BlogTour! #Review – Just My Type by Hannah Doyle (@ByHannahDoyle) @headlinepg @AnneCater

Day two of the ‘Just My Type’ blog tour is here, with me, TWG! Many thanks to Anne Cater for the blog tour invite, and to the publisher for the ARC. Here is my review:

Meet Jasmine.
– The quirky/cool photographer to a superstar blogger
– She’s going on a date with a SUPER hot guy on the London Eye tonight
– Best friend Mila is her wifey for life
– This millennial is #LivingHerBestLife

But fast-forward a few hours, and the reality isn’t quite so picture perfect. Jasmine hates her stuck-up blogger boss. She can barely afford rent in her stupid London flat. Her best friend seems to have all her sh*t together. Oh, and that date she was so excited about? She got dumped. On the London Eye. In the middle of a thunderstorm. With a bunch of tourists watching…

Best friend Mila decides that Jasmine needs a new ‘type on paper’, because Jasmine’s current criteria is so off that her dating history is one long line-up of fools. So Mila challenges Jasmine to look once, if not twice, at the guys who wouldn’t normally fit her ‘type’. With nothing to lose, Jasmine accepts. Maybe, just maybe, she’ll surprise herself.

What does TWG think?

I am a massive fangirl of Hannah Doyle and her on point, witty humour. So much so, that if she decided to hold auditions for her new BFF, I would be the annoying person RIGHT at the front, shaking my pom poms to get her attention. See – even ‘fangirl’ is too tame for this one!

‘Just My Type’ is full of one liners which will make you nod your head like a nodding dog. You’ll be agreeing to the types on paper, wanting to kick Jasmine’s boss into next week, and no doubt turning green with envy at places Jasmine has galavanted off to. Trust me, people keep asking me if I’m Hulk….

Now, the premise of this storyline is something I’ve read before, I’ve got to be honest. However, the way in which it all came together, including the empowering angle, made ‘Just My Type’ stand out from the rest. I was a bit worried that I was going to find the storyline a bit predictable, but thankfully that wasn’t the case at all. Don’t get me wrong, I wanted to slap the boss round the face on several occasions, and I wished that Jasmine would tell her where to go – she was vile!! That was where the empowerment and looking at life with hope, really came into it’s own, and it became very clear as to why Jasmine didn’t go and flush her boss’s head down the toilet..

Hannah Doyle puts the power into GIRLPOWER tens times over, creating characters which are just like you and me, whilst also filling her readers with hope and the belief to succeed, even when they feel as though the world and its wife is on top of them.

‘Just My Type’ is a poignant read about thinking with your own heart instead of following the masses. It’s about learning how to trust your own instinct and to believe that you can achieve anything, just as long as you try.

Yet another laugh out loud, warm and highly relatable read from an author to watch!

#BlogTour! #Review – Harvey and the Moon Bus by Jill Stanton-Huxton (@JMStantonHuxton) @AnneCater @matadorbooks

Many thanks to Anne Cater for the blog tour invite, I am delighted to be reviewing ‘Harvey and the Moon Bus’ on my blog tour. Thanks also to the publisher for the ARC.

“Harvey is a grey cat with big green eyes and a long bushy tail, who loves wearing his favourite pair of blue dungarees. What a lovely sunny morning, Harvey thought, just the sort of day for an adventure.”

A beautifully-illustrated story about anthropomorphic animals who have a fantasy adventure together.

An underlying theme and moral message which is the importance of helping people.

A fantastical adventure story for children 5-7 years old.

Harvey sees his friends, Chester and Nelly, heading for the corner shop and boarding the Moon Bus, so he decides to join them. Harvey sits next to a grumpy grey rabbit. The Moon Bus takes off and flies through space and lands on the Moon and they all head off to The Moon Rock Sweet Emporium in Moon Crater Alley.

Harvey loses Chester and Nelly – so when he sees the grey rabbit heading for a nearby circus tent he decides to follow him, where he meets a small mouse called Gretel. But they only have 15 minutes to reach the Moon Bus before it leaves for the day!

Gretel tells him the magic mats on the Helter Skelter will take them to the Moon Bus really quickly. The magic mat flies over the cobbled streets towards a huge crater but Gretel falls out of Harvey’s pocket and starts plummeting to the ground. Harvey manages to grab her safely. As the Moon Bus is about to take off, Harvey uses the last of his three wishes to catch it and jumps on board.. They look out of the window and see the grey rabbit running along the runway after the Moon Bus… But will he catch it in time?

What does TWG think?

I read this to my little five year old before bed last night and, even though I said that I would only read a couple of chapters, I ended up reading her the entire thing. It’s safe to say that she certainly enjoyed it, especially as it contained animals!

The story of Harvey, the moon bus and his friends, was such a pleasure to read, however I did find that the general flow of the story wasn’t so seamless in terms of how it was told.

That aside, I thought that the theme of right from wrong was such a clever and well thought out addition to the book. My daughter was not amused that someone wasnt being nice, but she knew straight who the character was that made things better.

‘Harvey and the Moon Bus’ is the ideal bedtime story for both adults and children alike.

#BlogTour! #Review – #EllieandtheHarpMaker by Hazel Prior (@HaveAHarp) @TransworldBooks @AnneCater

It gives me great pleasure to kick off the blog tour for ‘Ellie and the Harp Maker’ by Hazel Prior. Hugest of thanks, as always, to Anne Cater for the blog tour invite, and of course thank you to the publisher for the ARC. Here is my review:

Ellie and the Harp Maker Cover
Meet Ellie. She’s perfectly happy with her home and her husband and her quiet life. Happy enough, anyway. Which is why she’s so surprised to find herself drawn to an extraordinary stranger who gives her a gift – and a fresh perspective.

Meet Dan. He thinks all he needs to be happy is the time and space to carry on making harps. Sometimes people buy them, too. But the last thing he expects is for Ellie to walk into his life, a whirlwind with cherry-coloured socks, bringing a string of surprises into his ordered existence.

As Ellie and Dan get to know one another, they begin to see the world – and themselves – in an entirely new way…

What does TWG think?

If I was required to sum up this book in one word, the word that springs to mind would be ‘majestic’. ‘Ellie and the Harp Maker’ isn’t the type of storyline that can be rushed. It needs to have, in my opinion, quality time spent reading it, as well as quality time spent reading between the lines to appreciate the beauty of this particular storyline.

At times I felt as though this book was too far down the literary novel route for my liking, only because I thought that it all seemed a bit heavy and intricate for my little mind to understand. My issue, I’m common after all. However, the beauty of Ellie’s and Dan’s friendship blew me away, and blew those thoughts out of my mind before they got too comfortable.

I have seen a harp, but never in a million years did I know the intricacy which went into making the delicate instrument. I do now though, and wow, I was certainly impressed. I’ve always thought of the harp to be an understated instrument. I can’t play it, in fact, I can’t play many instruments except the triangle, but I really did enjoy being able to lose myself in Ellie’s character as she made the choice to put her fingers to the strings in order to learn how to play. Envious? A little. I won’t lie!

Dan is a man who likes things a certain way. He has a heart of gold and a life which requires organisation and concentration so, when Ellie appears in his life, her colourful burst of personality was a bit of a shock to the system for him. One that would both be a blessing as well as a curse.

Both of the main characters, I thought, had such addictive personalities and were written in a very delicate and well crafted manner. Even though they both wore their hearts on their sleeves throughout the book, I really don’t think that readers get to see all of who they truly are. A clever move from the author as readers get to use their imagination to forge where, in their minds, the characters end up after the book has finished.

Overall, ‘Ellie and the Harp Maker’ was a very in-depth, majestic, poignant novel which was written soulfully, and tenderly. I enjoyed it, I really did.

#BlogTour! #Review – We All Fall Down by Daniel Kalla (@DanielKalla) @SimonSchusterUK @AnneCater

Many thanks to Anne Cater for the blog tour invite for ‘We All Fall Down’ by Daniel Kalla, and to Simon & Schuster for the ARC. Here is my review:

…**THIS IS A GOVERNMENT ALERT**IF YOU EXHIBIT SYMPTOMS, STAY IN YOUR HOMES**PLEASE REMAIN CALM AND DO NOT ATTEMPT THE RESCUE OF OTHERS**THIS IS A GOVERNMENT ALERT**IF YOU EXHIBIT SYMPTOMS, STAY IN YOUR HOMES**PLEASE REMAIN CALM AND DO NOT ATTEMPT THE RESCUE OF OTHERS**THIS IS A GOVERNMENT ALERT**…

IT STARTS WITH ONE PATIENT

A woman is dying in an Italian hospital, coughing up blood, convulsing and barely conscious.

BEFORE IT SPREADS TO THE TOWN

Dr Alana Vaughn, an expert from NATO, confirms everyone’s worst fears: the woman has the highly infectious disease that swept through Europe eight hundred years ago. The Black Death.

AND TAKES THE CITY

The sickness is spreading so quickly that soon the outbreak becomes a global pandemic. Markets crash and governments fall as quickly as the citizens they govern.

THEN THE COUNTRY

As panic takes hold and the death toll climbs, the consequences become horrifically clear – Alana must discover a way to stop the disease or it will be the end of us all.

THEN THE WORLD – AND WE ALL FALL DOWN

What does TWG think?

I was so looking forward to reading this one! I don’t know what it is about medical novels and medical memoirs at the moment, but I just cannot get enough of them.

With a storyline as black as the epidemic ‘Black Death’ itself, ‘We All Fall Down’ explores the devastation of a disease that wiped out millions of people hundreds of years ago. The author states at the end of the book that, whilst the building blocks of the storyline are indeed fiction, the cement which holds them together, ie the medical knowledge, is indeed fact.

I did feel as though I had walked into a storyline half way through, because I felt like I was missing something at the beginning. Unfortunately that feeling did stay with me until the end, so I did spend a lot of time confused and wondering whether I had missed a book beforehand or something. I don’t know.

That said, the contents of the novel was written in such a gutsy and chilling manner, with the author describing the events with astute attention to detail, I often felt as though I was in amongst the devastation myself.

‘We All Fall Down’ is very graphic and very gripping so, despite being confused by the shell of the book, I was able to appreciate the medical side of the book like a duck to water.

Daniel Kalla is such a powerful and intelligent writer – I’m looking forward to reading more from this author.

Chilling, disturbing, eventful, and extremely eye opening, ‘We All Fall Down’ is a gritty and dark read which makes you reach for the anti bacterial handwash, ten times more than usual.

#BlogTour! #Review – Worst Case Scenario by Helen Fitzgerald (@FitzHelen) @OrendaBooks @AnneCater

worst case blog poster 2019 (1)
Woo! Day three of the ‘Worst Case Scenario’ blog tour is here, which means I get to share my review of Helen Fitzgerald’s latest beauty! Huge thanks, as always, to Anne Cater and Orenda Books for the blog tour invite!

Worst Case Scenario Cover
Mary Shields is a moody, acerbic probation offer, dealing with some of Glasgow’s worst cases, and her job is on the line. Liam Macdowall was imprisoned for murdering his wife, and he’s published a series of letters to the dead woman, in a book that makes him an unlikely hero – and a poster boy for Men’s Rights activists.

Liam is released on licence into Mary’s care, but things are far from simple. Mary develops a poisonous obsession with Liam and his world, and when her son and Liam’s daughter form a relationship, Mary will stop at nothing to impose her own brand of justice … with devastating consequences.

What does TWG think?

This book honestly has the best first line I think I have ever read! Given the theme of the sentence, so to speak, I probably shouldn’t like it, but the fact that it was such a bold and intriguing opening just made me want to ignore everyone around me until I had finished reading it.

Mary, Mary, Mary. What a woman! She doesn’t give a monkeys, and yet she owns that like a woman scorned. Sorry, a menopausal woman! Seeing as I have not had the pleasure of going through the menopause just yet, it was quite insightful to follow a character whose honesty about the subject was incredibly refreshing in the jaw dropping, severely shocking kind of way.

As much as I would love to sit here and talk about Mary’s quirks for the entire review, I have to touch upon the fact that ‘Worst Case Scenario’ isn’t a read about a menopausal woman who is cheesed off – the storyline does contain some rather dark and sinister events regarding a man named Liam, a wife murderer. Now, there is a lot more to him that meets the eye. If you were to quickly glance at the character and the way that he comes across in the story, you may find that you teeter towards empathy, purely because he doesn’t come across as a monster wife murderer….for a short space of time anyway.

I adore Helen Fitzgerald’s unique, addictive, and honest story telling as she makes several characters from different walks of life, come alive in such a laugh-out-loud, boisterous manner which had me telling myself off for proper belly laughing at some of the antics described in the book.

‘Worst Case Scenario’ is a brilliant, brilliant book that had me thinking ‘what the f….aalalala’ more times than I can count, leaving me with my jaw hanging off its hinges at the very end. This is definitely a one of a kind read, one that Helen Fitzgerald has delivered in the only way that she knows how; phenomenally.

#BlogTour! #Review – Come Back to Me by Daniela Sacerdoti @HeadlinePG @AnneCater

Delighted to be taking part in the blog tour for ‘Come Back to Me’ by Daniela Sacerdoti. Many thanks to Anne Cater and Headline for the tour invite and ARC. Here is my review:

Three separate lives. Three broken hearts.

Haunted by his wife’s death, Matt arrives on Seal Island determined to be alone and unable to escape his grief.

In the island’s hospital, a young woman named Rose lies in a coma, trapped by the memories of events leading up to her accident.

Grace, the island’s doctor, is at the heart of the community. Only she knows how much she regrets turning down the chance of love and a family years ago.

For these three people hope seems gone.

But life is about to offer an unexpected new beginning…

What does TWG think?

What a flawlessly stunning, atmospheric and emotive read this is! Three lives. Three different people. Three different stories. Two with one thing in common; regret.

‘Come Back to Me’ is a tale which plays a symphony on your emotions from start to finish. Main characters Matthew, Grace and Rose add such dynamic and magnetic depth to the storyline as we learn of their heartache as the story progresses.

I did find the novel hard to read at times because the emotion was just so raw and struck several chords with me, and the way in which Daniela Sacerdoti have her characters hope, got right under my skin until the very end.

Sacerdoti is one, incredibly talented author who had me singing from the same hymn sheet whilst her characters played a tune with my fragility. Its books like ‘Come Back to Me’ which put reading on the map.

A beautiful, poignant novel which filled my heart with hope.

#BlogTour! #Review – #GardenOfLostAndFound by Harriet Evans (@HarrietEvans) @HeadlinePG @AnneCater

Second blog tour of the day and what a beautiful cover it has; The Garden of Lost and Found’ by Harriet Evans. Many thanks, as always, to Anne for the blog tour invite, and to Headline for the ARC. Here is my review for my stop on the tour today:

Garden of Lost and Found Cover

Nightingale House, 1919. Liddy Horner discovers her husband, the world-famous artist Sir Edward Horner, burning his best-known painting The Garden of Lost and Found days before his sudden death.

Nightingale House was the Horner family’s beloved home – a gem of design created to inspire happiness – and it was here Ned painted TheGarden of Lost and Found, capturing his children on a perfect day, playing in the rambling Eden he and Liddy made for them.

One magical moment. Before it all came tumbling down…

When Ned and Liddy’s great-granddaughter Juliet is sent the key to Nightingale House, she opens the door onto a forgotten world. The house holds its mysteries close but she is in search of answers. For who would choose to destroy what they love most? Whether Ned’s masterpiece – or, in Juliet’s case, her own children’s happiness.

Something shattered this corner of paradise. But what?

What does TWG think?

After reading Harriet Evan’s previous novel, ‘The Wildflowers’, I was so eager to read more of the authors books. My excitement for ‘The Garden of Lost and Found’ was through the roof!

If you haven’t yet picked up a novel by Harriet Evans, you are missing out on a whole other world. A home away from home if you will. The outline of this novel is similar to the authors others in terms of the dual timeline and split narratives which, if you’re not used to reading books like that, it can be a little bit confusing until you get into the swing of things.

‘The Garden of Lost and Found’, in my opinion, starts off exceptionally slow and requires a bit of patience before the real gem of the storyline became clear. Evans is exceptional at setting the scene in her novels, which is why having patience will be highly rewarded the more of the novel you read.

Juliet’s life isn’t going to plan. She has one more chance (according to her) to sort herself out before she alienates her children for good. Her intentions are there, but the delivery leaves a lot to be desired but, seeing as Juliet’s children are indeed young, they won’t quite understand the logic behind why their mum has decided to do what she has done.

I adored the change in dynamics throughout the storyline, putting family drama’s and multiple generations in the spotlight beautifully. I thought that the story gave off such a magical and enticing vibe – this is such a special, special read and definitely one of a kind.

I was blown away by the authors beautifully descriptive writing and the way she made her characters come alive and steal your heart. Another wonderful, enchanting novel from Harriet Evans.

#BlogTour! #Review – Call Me Star Girl by Louise Beech (@LouiseWriter) @OrendaBooks @AnneCater #CallMeStarGirl

This lady needs no introduction, so, all I will say is I am HONOURED to be hosting the bird who wrote ‘Call Me Star Girl’ on the blog today. Huge thanks to Anne and Orenda Books for the blog tour invite, and to Jen for buying me a signed copy! Here is my review:

Stirring up secrets can be deadly … especially if they’re yours


Pregnant Victoria Valbon was brutally murdered in an alley three weeks ago – and her killer hasn’t been caught.
Tonight is Stella McKeever’s final radio show. The theme is secrets. You tell her yours, and she’ll share some of hers.

Stella might tell you about Tom, a boyfriend who likes to play games, about the mother who abandoned her, now back after fourteen years. She might tell you about the perfume bottle with the star-shaped stopper, or about her father …

What Stella really wants to know is more about the mysterious man calling the station … who says he knows who killed Victoria, and has proof.
Tonight is the night for secrets, and Stella wants to know everything…

What does TWG think?

‘Starrrrrrrr, that’s what they call meeee.’

Got to love Kiki Dee!

Wow, wow, wow – what a striking read. I finished this book in the early hours of the morning a couple of days ago, with my eyes glistening with unshed tears for our Star Girl. I was bereft. Empowered. Emotionally drained. I was overcome with feelings that I struggled to file away. ‘Call Me Star Girl’ isn’t book with Radio 2 at the core. It’s a book which takes both the readers, and the characters, on a journey they will never, ever forget.

How far would you go for love? I don’t mean washing your partner’s soiled pants, or clearing up their puke when they’re poorly. I’m talking about things a lot more complicated than that. Would you move heaven and Earth for your one and only, refusing to look anywhere other than the ground that they walk on? See, Stella showed love as an obsession. An obsession which clouded her judgement and looking at her life through rose coloured glasses. They say that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree – just look at Stella’s mother for example. I won’t divulge why, but it will all make sense once you come across that particular character.

Stella’s love life isn’t the only concerning thing in this book. Nope. Someone has lost their life. An act of revenge? Or an accident? Stella, thanks to her job in the radio station, hears on the news reports regarding that devastating night and, thankfully, she can look at the situation from afar. Not for long though. How does the death of Victoria Valbon, concern Stella? And why is someone being a smart alec?

Atmospheric would be one word to describe this particular storyline, but in all honesty, I think the words ‘bloody outstanding’ work a lot better. Louise Beech left me in a predicament I had never found myself in before, thanks to a storyline which, if you looked in the dictionary under the word ‘unique’, you’ll find that the definition is ‘Call Me Star Girl – Louise Beech’.

This is a story that highlights the beauty of books. A story which had me so overcome with emotion, my tears refused to flow. A story so unique, its left an imprint on my soul. Louise Beech is an exceptionally talented, majestic, and enchanting author who writes with incredible passion, poise, and sheer brilliance.

One of the best books I think I have ever read, ‘Call Me Star Girl’ is everything that’s right with the literary world.
