Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick.
What Lou doesn’t know is she’s about to lose her job or that knowing what’s coming is what keeps her sane.
Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he’s going to put a stop to that.
What Will doesn’t know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they’re going to change the other for all time.
This book it makes you look at life in a different light, it brings all the negative into prospect and makes you want to change your outlook, it certaintly did for me. I would like to give high remarks to this story and how it was told, I couldn’t put it down, I needed to know the witty remarks from Will, needed to imagine Lou’s hideous outfits. It was a great book.
The relationship between Patrick and Lou wasn’t in the best of places even when she began working for Will, but when that happened Lou found herself growing feelings for Will, trying to change the outcome of his life. In the end, I was hoping for a different outcome…
Lou’s thoughts about Will.
but I wanted to show him. A silent promise, if you like, that there was a bigger picture, a brighter future.
Lou’s response to her bumblebee tights from Will.
“I don’t believe it,” I said. I had started to laugh – a joyous, unexpected thing. “Oh my god! Where did you get these?”
Lou pleading with Will.
“But you’re not even giving it a chance,” I whispered.
The song that suits this book is ‘Are you with me by Lost Frequencies.’
I rate this book 4.5 stars.
