4.5

I give the first half of this book 4 stars and the second half 5 stars. The first half is delightful, but it isn't until the second half that it becomes un-put-down-able. Great characters, great story, witty writing. The book could easily have existed without a romantic subplot, but it was a very sweet romantic subplot nonetheless.

The feeling of reading this book is akin to watching my favourite childhood movie, truly a heartwarming experience that leaves me in a puddle of happy tears. 

TJ Klune has created something special here and I hope everyone has the pleasure of enjoying this little slice of home. His dialogue has to be the best part of his writing, equal parts witty and endearing. Lucy is probably my favourite character in the book, quite possibly my favourite fictional six-year-old.
