I'm a hopeless romantic so this book was perfect for me... it brought back memories of first loves & that idealistic romantic view you have of the world when you're 15, without being too soppy/sentimental. Lily is a very likeable character & you can't help yourself getting wrapped up in her world & her love interest... as the plot unfolds, you'll find yourself hungrily reading until the very end, which does not disappoint!!
If you like romantic stories that make your heart melt, READ THIS!!
Lily is forced to move to Australia with her mum to live with a man her mother met on the internet. Comi9ng from the UK, you can imagine Lily is not happy about being uprooted to the other side of the world to a place where she knows no one. The beginning of the book is about lily as a 15yr old girl and her time before she starts her new school. Armed with a camera she starts work at the conservation park where her mum's boyfriend works and meets Ben. Ben is 27 and works at the conservation park. Lily develops a crush on Ben and is utterly devastated when he leaves for the UK to get married to another woman. The book then fast-forward around 10 years to the present day where Lily is working as a receptionist, has a lovely boyfriend and a great life. But when she meets Ben again she has a lot of hard decisions to make.
Paige toon captures the mind of a teenage girl perfectly. If you can remember your first crush and all the feelings that went along with it that is exactly how reading this book makes you feel. It can be a bit of an emotional rollercoaster but saying that what good book isn't? I would recommend this book to anyone as it is a beautiful heart warming story.
If you loved Paige's previous books, you'll love this. Highly recommended
P.S Look out for a few familiar faces :o)
We then move back to the present day which follows immediately from the Prologue where Lily is being proposed to by Richard (at a wedding, no less). Because Lily is still hooked on Ben, I worried that maybe I would just see it as a teenage crush, and that Lily should have gotten over it years ago, but it wasn't like that at all. Paige writes the first 175 pages so well that it would be far too mean to just brush off Lily's love for Ben because it just comes across so real and all consuming. I must admit, I did find the present day part of the book a little bit slow. After the fast pace of the first 175 pages, it all seemed to slow down a little. That's not a criticism at all, though, and I eagerly awaited the arrival of someone from Lily's past because for me, it couldn't come soon enough!
Much like Lucy, Meg and Daisy before her, I absolutely loved Lily. I adored her 16-year-old self and could have read an entire book about her at that age. She doesn't have an easy time of it at 16 and she handled it well.Read more ›
Each time I read another book I feel in love with her writing a little bit more.
The characters feel like friends they appear to be that real.
Can't wait for her next book.
However having said that I thoroughly loved all the other characters and I would still recommend it as I am sure tons of readers would feel very differently to me.
My favourite thing about Paige Toon is how multiple characters from her other books are always incorporated in to every single one! It makes you feel as though everything of her's that you read is actually a reality as opposed to fiction.
