“In the photo, Rosie stands on the clinical white tiles of the hotel’s kitchen floor , hands to her mouth in mock-shock, and Fox is in front of her, long suit trousered legs bent on one knee, holding out a croissant the way someone would offer an engagement ring.” 💙

It took me a good while to really get into this book. I wasn’t really clicking with Emmie, the protagonist for a long while. Emmie is a teenage girl who releases a balloon at a difficult time in her life and a boy, Lucas, finds the balloon and they become besties. It’s their story and while I found the premise to be sweet, I had a hard time with a 30 year old woman who is so honed in on a boy that it becomes such a focus in her life. But once the cast of supporting characters was introduced and I got to know them, I fell in love with Emmie’s crew. They lift her up, encourage her and become her family. It’s really lovely to see Emmie grow in the course of the book and to see her feel the support of chosen family. I just loved Louise ❤️! You have to read the book to find out who this person is to Emmie 🙂 No spoilers here! It was a blast reading this along with the thechicklitbookclub ladies in the daily chat! So fun – our next book is starting soon so check out thechicklitbookclub and see if you want to join us! 💙
