I've done a few book reviews on Jemma In Words, all claiming that they are my favourite - truly they are. Some months ago now I did a mid-way review of Giovanna Fletchers second novel, 'You're the one that I want', which you can find here. I finished it soon after and loved it. I have been watching Giovanna's youtube channel and it became apparent that she was writing a christmas version of her debut novel 'Billy and Me'. I knew I had to read her debut and it was only a matter of time before I downloaded it on to my iBooks on my iPad.
I downloaded this book on friday, and it's now Tuesday. To say I loved it is an understatement. It was incredible and I was hooked from the get-go. Without ruining it I'll try and give you a brief summary:
It's about an ordinary girl who falls in love with a movie-star. Think of it almost as a modern day Notting Hill (coincidentally my favourite film in the world). It makes you laugh, cry and fills your heart with both sorrow and hope. It builds dreams, and shatters hopes and futures.
I think that's as much as I want to say about what happens, I think the best thing about this book is that there are so many unexpected things - I actually squealed "Nooooo", on more than one occasion.
For me to say that it's amazing is an understatement. It's enriching and nourishing. There is so much more that I could, and want to, say. But I won't. I will let you discover the story for yourself - it's breathtaking. I really hope you love it as much as I did - I'm sure that you will.
