This book reads like an old friend. The feeling of reading as a kid is perfectly portrayed through the pages. I love the way the old journal is detailed. This book feels familiar as bookworms everywhere will fall in love with the feeling of reading all over again. The details of the Dove family are incredibly intriguing. I'm interested to see the development between the main character and those around her. Who she makes an impact on in her growth and who she aids in their growth as well. What will the journal reveal about the Dove family? About the town? About the library itself perhaps? This book is made for a stormy night and hot cup of tea and once I get it that's what I'm immediately sitting down to do.
