Lovely reading, I read half of the book in one evening! Caroline touches different aspects of life around the aim of getting the best of what it has to offer - family, friends, love and relationships. It also touches our day to day insecurities. I can find different aspects and stages of my life in the book. Can't wait to see how the characters interact and where the story goes.
Finding your way in the world, friends, faith, relationships and purpose are all themes unpacked in this book. One of the characters definitely reminded me of my younger self and I found myself wishing I'd read a book like this at the time to help me figure myself out! I skipped through this book eager to know how things worked out in each element of the story. A lovely read.
