Lifesaving for Beginners by Ciara Geraghty
She has lots of friends, an ordinary job, and she never ever thinks about her past. This is Kats story. None of it is true.
Milo McIntyre loves his mam, the peanut butter and banana muffins at the funky Banana café, and the lifesaving class he does after school. He never thinks about his future, until the day it changes forever. This is Milo’s story, all of it is true.
And then there is the other story. The one with a twist of fate which somehow brings together a boy from Brighton and a woman in Dublin, and uncovers the truth once and for all.
This is the story that’s just about to begin……..
This really is a read with real depth. It also shows how society has changes in its opinions over the last 20 years. This is a family that faces crises and grows through it. A wonderful heart-warming, believable tale. Ciara Geraghty has been compared to Marian and I can quite understand why. A very enjoyable read and should not be overlooked for this year’s holiday reads selection.
