This book is the story of second chances, the story of support and the story of standing up for yourself. There is love and what it can do. And I don’t mean the romantic kind of love only. I also mean the love between a mother and her child.
The story stresses on relationships between people, neighbours, parents and also friendships.
The characters are realistic and relatable. The language is simple and the story just flows. It is unputdownable.
I loved the book and also recommend it to everyone.
