About this deal

Allegra ist jung, hat ihre beruflichen Ziele nicht erreicht und wird von der Suche nach ihrer Mutter, die sie als Baby bei ihrem Vater zurückgelassen hat, getrieben. When she hears the quote telling her people’s personalities are made up of five people around them, she longs to meet those who will improve her lot. Her innocence in how she sees the world is refreshing and tugged at my heart especially when it leads her to situation you know she may get hurt.

Cecelia Ahern does raise sensitive themes throughout the novel but there is no great amount of space given over to them. Ahern’s writing style, while initially taking some time to engage the reader, proves to be captivating and authentic. One person with a flash car gets right under Freckles parking warden skin and poses a question: who are the five in your life?

The incorporation of a lovely romance for Allegra adds a delightful dimension to the plot, enhancing the overall feel-good aspect of the story. Pops was a wonderful character, odd in his own way exactly like Allegra but totally accepting of the type of person she was.

However, without spoiling, Allegra is used, abused and let down so many times, I just prayed there would be some sort of happy ending eventually. I opted for this book mainly for two reasons: I wanted to give her another try, and I found the cover cute! She doesn't realise her worth and is constantly undermining herself, but she's the type of person you'd absolutely love to be friends with and I'd happily have her as one of my five.I’m drawn to writing about loss, to characters that have fallen and who feel powerless in their lives.
