    Wow, I m not exactly sure what to write here As soon as I read the premise for this book I knew I wanted to read it I fought to buy this book for my library and I am so glad I did I don t want to give too much away so this will be a very general review The start of the book threw me off a bit It didn t exactly start out slow but it felt a bit stilted I am also not a huge fan of British literature, mostly because of my own bias against words like mum and the fact that I don t really under Wow, I m not exactly sure what to write here As soon as I read the premise for this book I knew I wanted to read it I fought to buy this book for my library and I am so glad I did I don t want to give too much away so this will be a very general review The start of the book threw me off a bit It didn t exactly start o...

    A story concerning the afterlife of a kid and the way her friends gradually come to find her again, Friends for Life is creative, mysterious and very well written.
