EXCERPT: It was as he lay in his bed, wide awake and staring at the ceiling while the adults screamed their laughter below, that a sad realisation came to him. He didn’t want to be anywhere, not at school, not in the back of his father’s car, where cigarette smoke and fast corners had made him sick, not in the cold kitchen with the fuzzy TV, where there was no one to talk to, and certainly not in this bedroom filled with antiques from his grandpa’s house. And that left only one question: if he didn’t feel comfortable anywhere, then where was he supposed to be?

ABOUT THIS BOOK: There are two sides to every love story…

Anna Cole grew up in care, and wants to start a family of her own. Theo Montgomery had a loveless childhood, and wants to find his soulmate.

Then, one day, Theo meets Anna, and Anna meets Theo.

Each shows the other how to love. And each shows
the other what heartbreak feels like…

This is Theo’s story.

MY THOUGHTS: One love, two stories. . . an interesting concept and one Amanda Prowse has executed beautifully. I really liked Anna, but I absolutely adored Theo.

I started this book this morning and just read until it was finished.

Theo pulled at my heartstrings. I cannot believe that parents can be so casual, so careless with their children as Theo’s were. That any parent could even contemplate sending such a young child off to boarding school is completely foreign to me, and yet I know it happens.

If you are looking for a beautiful, touching read, I highly recommend this wonderful pair of books, Anna and Theo. 4.5☆
