Firstly Iíd like to thank the publisher for sending me this book to read and give an honest review. I had heard many intriguing things about it so I was looking forward to getting stuck in.

Rachelís introduction to Clifton Avenue Care Home was rather amusing, as was her journey home after the first day there Ė I knew then that I would enjoy this book if it carried on in the same way!
