This book was a really good read; it told a story about a teenage girl who goes on the journey to find out more about her mother who died when she was younger. The story had a great unexpected twist which kept me hooked. The characters were strong, and you could relate to them. She goes to her grandma's to stay, when her father goes away for the summer, on a work trip. This is a new adventure for her, as she has never been to London and she hardly ever see's her grandma.
She is dreading her time there, as she thinks that her time there will be boring. But she couldn't have been more wrong. She meets a young student Harry, who is working for her grandma over summer; he shows her the wonders of the London town. The book gives a descriptive encounter of her experiences, and her overview of what she goes through.
I won't give the plot away too much, but her journey starts when she offers to clean out an old wardrobe full of her mother's old stuff. Hidden amongst a pile of books are a selection of rather personal diary's, they contain typical teenage diary entries. However the nicknames her mother uses in the book causes Rain to get the complete wrong end of the stick. She reads the diary from when her mother was the same age as her, this was when she got pregnant.
I really enjoyed this book and I definitely recommend it.
