Journal Entry 1 by starbytes from Calgary, Alberta Canada on Wednesday, August 13, 2003
This book is not bad. The reason I rated it only seven is because the story didn't much appeal to me. The storyline, the message the author sent and his writing are all very good, I just didn't like it much because of the ending I guess. But it did keep me on the edge of my seat all the while I was reading it until the end. Don't get me wrong, the ending was good, I just didn't like it. :) It is a very interesting book and I hope others will enjoy it more than I did.

Thinking of a bookray with this one....

From the back of the book:

"You're beautiful,"Johnny told her and so, full of hope, seventeen-year-old Felicia crosses the Irish Sea to England to find her lover and tell him she is pregnant. Searching desperately for Johnny in Birmingham, she is, instead, found by Mr Hilditch, pudgy canteen catering manager, collector and befriender of homeless young girls.

Journal Entry 4 by tara-K from Oegstgeest, Zuid-Holland Netherlands on Tuesday, October 21, 2003
The book arrived today along with another bookray book!! I hope to get started on it this weekend. Thanks starbytes. Looking forward to reading it. Sorry it took me so long to get it rad. Once I was able to sit down and read it, it went pretty fast. I enjoyed the book and it kept on the edge but I agree that the ending wasn't all that great. I don't want to give anything away, but I'd have made the ending a little different myself.

The book will be in the mail on Monday to Portugal.

The book reached the next stage of its journey this morning. I finished my last Ray read last night, so will start on this one day to-day and I don't think it will be with me for too long.

I quite enjoyed this story - it held my interest well, but I thought it fell a little flat right at the end.

It's now ready to make its way to Kymberlie in Texas.

Mailed on 2 April 2004.

Received in the past month or so, though I'm just now journaling it. Sorry! Going on my TBR pile so I can get it to the next reader as soon as possible.

Journal Entry 9 by kymberlie from Spring, Texas USA on Sunday, August 08, 2004
Felicia is seventeen and pregnant. Her lover, Johhny Lysaght, has returned to his job in England, so determined to find him even though the circumstances around her points to the fact that he doesn't want her any longer, Felicia follows him.

While searching the town that Johnny is supposed to work in, she meets Mr. Hilditch, an overweight canteen catering manager. Mr. Hilditch befriends young girls in need and we are left to wonder for what purpose he feels compelled to do this.

The first two thirds of the book I spent trying to determine Mr. Hilditch's motives. They seemed shady, but since nothing was ever definitely said, I was left wondering. Once his motives are made perfectly clear, however, I found myself not enjoying the book as much and by the last fifty pages, I really just wanted to be done with it. I also must admit that the twist revealed in the last chapter, I didn't see coming at all.

All in all, a decent read and at two hundred pages, probably worth the read.

I'll be sending this off as soon as I get an address.

Journal Entry 14 by jenvince from Scottsdale, Arizona USA on Saturday, March 04, 2006
This qualifies for the Keep Them Moving in 2006 Challenge.

This was interesting, though I do agree with the other readers in that it fell a little flat at the end.

I see I am last on the list, so I'll pass this on soon.

I started this but really can't get into it so I am going to donate it to the book sale to raise money for the activity fund at the nursing home I work at.
