Kitty Logan has lost her way…
As a journalist, she’s spent the past few years chasing the big scoops – no matter the consequences. When she makes a terrible mistake, she finds herself mired in scandal, her career implodes and even her personal relationships are tested to the limits.
At a loss, Kitty finds distraction in a list of one hundred names her late mentor and boss, Constance, has left her. Kitty’s been given one final chance, the most important assignment of her life – to write the story behind the one hundred names as a tribute piece to Constance. As she tracks down the people on the list and tries to work out what connects them, Kitty meets some extraordinary people.
Can these strangers’ stories help her finally understand her own?
Amazing, beautiful and inspiring story of 100 names that were written on paper for Kate to write about, she didn’t know why Constance had done this list and what they all had in common but what did she have to lose?
Kitty, for all her sins wrote that horrible story about a family man who worked at a school after being lied to by two teenage girls who plotted revenge after he had turned one of them down. Her career was over as far as her role on the television show was concerned. However she clung on to her reporter job at the magazine because of Constance (her dear friend and colleague and believer in her) being the owner.
In the middle of all the pressure and distress that occurs to her she manages to get the ought with the help of her friend Steve, even when her front door gets vandalised.
The story unfolded of her contacting these people who were the most different to each other you could ever imagine, bringing them all together was hard for kitty but it turned into a lovely story which started with Bridget Murphy who made a bet when she was younger which I thought was brilliant (I will not divulge because you will just have to read it), then there was Mary-Rose Godfrey the beautiful girl being who would do hair and beauty for the the elderly in the local hospital. The funniest and by far the most incredible was Jadrek Vysotski a Polish guy who wanted to break a world record for…well I shall let you find out! Let’s just say it’s brilliant!
Cecelia Ahern never lets me down, I’ve read alot of her books and I shall be downloading the 2 that I’m yet to read. I highly recommend this quirky, yet dramatic story of a girl accepting what life throws at her!
