Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Tamara, suffering from the trauma of the suicide of her father and from being a teenager, finds an old blank diary in the mobile library. Very strangely she unknowingly begins to write in it, writing up the day to come. This might all sound a little far-fetched but if you are a Cecelia Ahern fan you will know how she so cleverly turns the unusual into the normal, how she brings magic into people’s lives and turns despair into happiness. It’s all very heart-warming.

Comparison: Julie Cameron, Ben Sherwood, Melanie Rose (Down to Earth).

If you like Cecelia Ahern you might also like to read books by Jodi Picoult, Sarah Addison Allen and Anna Maxted.
