Some of you may know that last year I read and loved Holly Goldberg Sloan's I'll Be There. It was pretty difficult to get hold of in the UK, but I can now announce that Piccadilly Press will be publishing the book in paperback on 24th May 2012. It really was one of my great 2011 discoveries and I hope that for many of you, it'll be a great 2012 discovery! I wrote a short five star (!!!) review when I first read the book, so here it is:
It's pretty difficult to get a five star review out of me, but this one managed with ease! I'm not the only one to think it was awesome, either. Gayle Foreman is quoted saying:
"Heartbreaking, suspenseful, life-affirming, magical: I'll Be There is all of those things. Mere description doesn't do this book justice. Only reading it does".
I totally agree with her too, this is a book that you have to read to truly experience. For all of you who love contemporary, this is quite different and very enjoyable. I know that a lot of you will really love this one and as I said in my review, this is a book I'd recommend - Go and pre-order it now!
