I just know that 2011 will be a great book year! I was recently wowed by Across The Universe and now I've been pleasantly surprised with The Book Of Tomorrow.
I loved this book. It's very much about growing up and taking a long hard look at yourself. There were tons of mysterious and intriguing aspects to the story that kept me racing through page after page.
This book left me with a satisfied feeling and the urge to find more of this author's books.
Just to give you an idea...it reminded me of say...a modern YA similar to the style of The Thirteenth Tale? If you like that style of book then you might enjoy this one. (I personally loved That one!)
About The Book:
Tamara Goodwin has always got everything she′s ever wanted. Born into a family of wealth, she grew up in a mansion with its own private beach, a wardrobe full of designer clothes, a large four poster bed complete with a luxurious bathroom en-suite. She′s always lived in the here and now, never giving a second thought to tomorrow.
But then suddenly her dad is gone and life for Tamara and her mother changes forever. Left with a mountain of debt, they have no choice but to sell everything they own and move to the country to live with Tamara′s Uncle and Aunt. Nestled next to Kilsaney Castle, their gate house is a world away from Tamara′s childhood. With her mother shut away with grief, and her aunt busy tending to her, Tamara is lonely and bored and longs to return to Dublin.
When a travelling library passes through Kilsaney Demesne, Tamara is intrigued. She needs a distraction. Her eyes rest on a mysterious large leather bound tome locked with a gold clasp and padlock. With some help, Tamara finally manages to open the book. What she discovers within the pages takes her breath away and shakes her world to its core.
Told in Cecelia′s imitable style, THE GIRL OF TOMORROW is a mesmerising and magical story for this autumn
