This book was bought because I remembered the name from a review who didn’t like it. I didn’t remember that last part and it sounded interesting to me so I picked it up.
What is on the back of the book?
Born into the lap of luxury and comfortable in the here and now, spoiled, tempestuous Tamara Goodwin has never had to look to the future – until the abrupt death of her father leaves her and her mother a mountain of debt and forces them to move in with Tamara’s peculiar aunt and uncle in a tiny countryside village. Tamara is lonely and bored, with a traveling library as her diversion. There she finds a large leather-bound book with a gold clasp and padlock, but no author name or title. Intrigued, she pries open the lock, and what she finds inside takes her breath away. Tamara sees entries written in her handwriting and dated for the following day. When the next day unfolds exactly as recorded, Tamara realises she may have found a solution to her problems. But in her quest to find answers, Tamara’s son learns that some pages are better left unturned and that, try as she may she mustn’t interfere with fate.
What did I think?
It sounds very cool, doesn’t it? Well, the book didn’t go much into the book/diary. I knew this going in as I had seen it in someone else’s review (I am unsure who at this point). Knowing this made sure I wasn’t disappointed. I enjoyed reading the story.
It had humour, doubt, and love in all the right places. I have grown to like Tamara not only because she has a good heart but also because I understand. She hurts people with words without wanting to. She is not just a girl anymore but she is also not yet a grown woman even though she wants to be, badly.
The book also has a bit of crazy which makes it even more exciting. It’s a good book, I recommend it. The cover is also very pretty but the gem is definitely on the inside.
It’s an easy read and worth the read.
Have you ever read the book of tomorrow? Lots of love, Melissa
