Our thoughts…

Choosing to stock this Paige Toon book was a true impulse buy. We’ve been reading Paige Toon since forever – since Lucy in the Sky in fact – fourteen years ago. Paige is one of those Authors that we read before reading and reviewing was even a ‘thing’ – back in the early days of Carole Matthews, Jill Mansell and so many others. But we couldn’t resist Someone I Used to Know – the blurb, the cover, and just the fact that it’s Paige of course.

Whether you’re a die hard Paige Toon fan or whether you’re brand new to her books – this one is going to sweep you off of your feet. As the book progressed the thoughts of, ‘Everyone needs a George and Theo in their lives’ were strong but towards the end it was adjusted to, ‘Everyone needs a Leah too.’ And every Foster Child needs a Foster parent like the strong supportive ones written about in this book. There’s so much to learn within these 400 pages – so much research and careful consideration of emotions and feelings has gone into this book. And yes, so many interesting facts about Alpacas too!

You will want to read and read and read until you reach the very last pages and that final epilogue as we reach somewhere in between now and then. It’s a stunning book, a beautifully unique storyline addressing so many aspects of society today and a wonderful underlying romance and mystery. It’s everything you need in a Paige Toon book.
