Read-a-long – Ciara Geraghty – Lifesaving for Beginners

I am taking part in a read-a-long hosted by Bree at http://www.1girl2manybooks.wordpress.com

Today we are discussing the first 149 pages of Lifesaving for Beginners just published by Hodder and Stoughton and released by Hachette Australia. Next Monday (18 February) will be pages 150 – 296 and the following Monday (25 February) will finish the book – pages 297 – 438.

It’s hard to say too much about the book without a major spoiler but it is told from the point of view of Milo, a ten year old boy in Brighton and Kat, a 39 year old woman in Dublin. “Just one day can change your life” says the blurb on the cover and that’s true in the story. Carefully organised lives unravel and secrets put aside many years ago come back to the surface and must be faced.

I’m enjoying it so far and it’s a struggle to stop at page 149. I’m keen to see how things play out.
