After a shocking accident, Martha Munro has given up on her childhood dreams.
With her confidence shattered, even leaving the house is scary, and a promising romance with gorgeous Logan is over before it even had a chance to begin.
But cheered on by her dad and her great friend, Madison, she makes a decision that could change everything.
Can Martha find the courage to step out into the world and love again?
There was something very special about this book. Not only is it a different kind of book that we are used to with the series but I related so hard with Martha. From her migraines to her confidence to her writing for a publisher. Everything about Martha just made sense, and sorry Jaz you may have a threat for my favourite.
The reason this book was different from the other books is that it is a whole new character and her very tenuous link to the girls in Madison. Her friendship with Madison was lovely and we do see the other girls and of course Prim, but they weren’t our focus. It was about Martha as we stepped away.
This also had a different feel because it touched upon such a poignant subject of mental health, which just made this book so relevant. It just all worked for me, and I love the different styles of it too. It didn’t feel like Little Duck Pond Café but I think that is why I love it more because it was new and refreshing.
I have blitzed the last few books and now I feel at a bit of a loss now to what to read. I am looking forward to meeting the new character in the next book and seeing how she fits in.
I say it every time, but never will I ever get bored of this gorgeous series. I have been here basically from the start and I will be here with every book that follows!
Until next time xxx
