” I won’t describe what i look like. Whatever you’re thinking, it’s probably worse.”

August Pullman was born with facial deformity but despite 27 operations, he will never look normal. It prevents him from going to a normal school – until now. He is about start 5th grade at Beecher Prep and he is nervous as he cannot walk down the corridor without being the subject of stares and cruelty. He is just an ordinary kid with an extraordinary face. Can he convince everyone that he is just like any other kid, despite appearances?

This book tells a warm and uplifting story that will have it’s readers laughing one minute and crying the next. I enjoyed reading this book. It manages to be about a person with an unlucky and rare syndrome, who we love not out of sympathy but out of love for him. It infuses you with inspiration and appreciation for the good things in your life

” If everyone made it a rule that wherever you are, whenever you can, you will try to act a little kinder than is necessary -the world really would be a better place . Then someone else, somewhere, someday, may recognize in you, in every single one of you, the face of God.”

Cecelia Ahern makes a splash with “P.S I Love You,” a surprisingly charming debut about holding on, letting go and learning to love again.

Some people wait all their whole lives to find their soulmates. But not Holly and Gerry”.

Holly and Gerry were high school sweethearts. No one could imagine Holly and Gerry without each other. She couldn’t live without him, until the day she had to. When Gerry loses his battle with cancer, Holly is left all alone, broken and unable to pick up the pieces.

No one knows her better than Gerry, so he leaves her a bundle of letters, guiding her into her new life without him. Each letter signed ” P.S I love you”. With some help from her best friends and loving family, she is on her path to discovering herself. She learns to laugh, overcome her fears and to rediscover love. Life is for living she realizes – but it always helps if there is an angel watching over you.

This book is beautifully written and touching. The characters feel so real and relatable and this book almost brought me to tears. For anyone who has lost someone or fears losing someone, then this book is for you. If you want to have a good read and a good laugh, then you need to read this!


Soo here’s the link for those of you who want to know Gerry and Holly better….
