|Paper Swans, Jessica Thompson|
Effy Jones, is down-to-earth. She has big plans for her charity, but her dead-end relationship threatens to hold her back. A chance to work with a multi-national PR company seems to be something beyond her wildest dreams. So what happens when this dream becomes a reality and Effy and Ben meet?
I really liked this book from the start. OK, so I found Ben a little too cocky to be a typical hero, but he's hiding something which threatens to take over his every waking thought, and once I realised that, I think I liked him a little more.
Effy, I thought was wonderful. I love the way she juggles everything in her life to follow her dreams and make her plans for the charity a reality. I also love the fact that she makes origami swans to keep her hands busy and her mind settled, whenever she is feeling stressed.
I found Paper Swans an easy book to read, and did so over the course of a few days. The story is your typical boy meets girl, boy fall for girl, something bad happens and they can't be together, but with a few little twists - one of which it took me a long time to figure out, almost until it was revealed, I must admit.
Described as being a book which will appeal to fans of New Girl, 500 Days of Summer, Juno and Little Miss Sunshine, (a fact I can't really comment on as I've never seen any of those things), it's the sort of heart-warming story which would make a nice romantic comedy. Definitely worth a read!
