It is such a deliciously magical bookish novel about Tilly, a girl who loves to read who lives with her grandparents in a bookshop and starts to see and then be able to talk with her favorite characters from books including Anne of Green Gables. (I love Anne of Green Gables and I think the author captured her perfectly). She also spots her grandparents talking to their favorite authors.
I love the idea of characters from books coming to life, and it reminds me a bit of INKHEART by Cornelia Funke (another of my favourites). I love books about books, especially when they are magical. It also deals with loss of a parent, being left out, and discovering new friends.
I am finding this such a comforting, fun, delightful, satisfying read that I think it will become one of my favorites that I want to re-read over and over. And I am excited to see that it is the first in a series (Pages & Co)
