Summary:  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.


To be honest, I wasn't even planning on reading this book because I thought that I wasn't going to enjoy it so I just decided to just watch the movie.

After hearing so many amazing reviews for this book, I really wanted to see what the hype was about and I did not regret it even though it sent me through a whirlwind of emotions. The characters have so much depth and character to them that they are very realistic to read about.

It does deal with a very sensitive topic that can be offensive to others but when you get past that, it really is an enjoyable book. It did open my mind to what other people are facing with disabilities.

For me, books that could make you choked with emotions is my definition of a wonderful book which this book definitely did. I really don't know what I could say about this book except that it was amazing and I would recommend that you keep a box of tissues at hand if/when you read this book.

My Rating:



  1. Great review. I never planned on reading this book, but the movie trailer makes it look really interesting. I might pick it up someday.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. I hope you do! It was an amazing book, but be warned: it is very emotional.
