My thoughts


This book is not my favorite, but it is very close to me. I would read it again, some events that happen in the book I felt were unnecessary but then again it’s a story. The description of the town and the library made me feel that I was living there and walking down the streets of the town. I like how the story is set in a small town that you can only get to it by a boat, I always dreamed of living in a town like that having one library in town though is a bit sad to me. Anyways, aside from that I like all the characters, the little kid is adorable she reminded me of Matilda (if you never seen the movie GO and watch it NOW). This book was the kind of book that made me awwhh, warm, sad, happy, smile, and loved. I suggest all book readers and book lovers to go and read this book. You will find A.J a bit of a jerk at the begging but then you will fall in love with him. I love reading book but I don’t pay attention for grammar and writing style I just like reading the story, and this story I found it very good.


I give this book 4 star
