My Thoughts:

Wow, what can I say about this AMAZING book?

The story first starts out with Tilly getting ready to go to the local fair with her best friend. At the fair she goes into a fortune tellers tent. The fortune teller was one of her childhood friends. So, Tilly decides to let Ashley give her a reading. At the end of the reading Ashley says what happens to her will give her clarity.

When Tilly is looking at photos from her past things start to happen. She starts getting cramps & then she blacks out and starts to see the future. First, she sees her dad stummbling out of a bar, then she sees a U-Haul in her driveway. Is she moving or is someone eles? There are more "visions" that Tilly has, but that would give the book away!

You also find out in the story that Tilly use to love taking pictures, until her mom passed away. She still took pictures when she was at work of the students who came into her office (she is a guideance counseler). Will she start taking photos again?

What I've learned:

I love that the book talked about photography, because I too love photography! I learned that you don't always have to be the one who fixes everything that goes wrong. There are others who are willing to help if you just ask them to help you!

Thank you, Allison for writting such a touching book about finding true happiness! I can't wait to read more of your books!
