Stella Moon isn't much for change. Why else would she have left her hometown to study music in London only to scurry back to teach scales to overgrown brats and the occasional curious adult? But sometimes you can't escape change, especially when it's staring you in the face (like, for instance, your boyfriend walking out on you), nipping at your heels (new kids next door w ...more

Hmm...not a jolly, LOL seems as if the main character is living her life underwater, sort of muted and slow-moving. That is the mark of a talented author! I enjoyed reading this novel.

This book doesn't fit under the usual bubbly, fun, pink chick lit umbrella - I wouldn't even class it that way except that it's published by Red Dress Ink. It's more of a story about family, relationships with family, the definition of family, etc. than it is a romantic novel. Sure, there's a touch of romance, but mostly you follow the main character as she finds herself and comes to find out more about her family. That said, it is a really wonderful book, definitely worth the read. I really enj ...more

The British cover and blurb suit the book a whole lot more than the one featured on GoodReads. For one thing, the GoodReads/US blurb makes this book sound like a chick-flick, which this book definitely isn't. It was a very thoughtful novel, with unusual sub-plots and characters. I very much enjoyed reading it. 9/10 ...more

I love red dress ink books, so I picked this book hoping for a good chick lit had potential in the beginning, but there were too many characters, and from what I remember of the ending it made me want to throw it across the room when I finished it.

A captivating tale about gaining the courage to face up to the truth that life is never perfect, and gaining the strength to free yourself from the burdens of your past, so that you can move on. Beautifully written and very addictive, this is one of my favourite books of all time.

I would probably give this a 3.5 if we could do halves...

Better than your average chick lit novel. Much more to the story than just a romance. I really like the characters - especially the two neighbor girls, Midge and Jojo.

I just finished reading this book and it was a great story with an interesting character. For me, it was something to look forward to reading when I got home from work. I think you will enjoy it too!

I really enjoyed this book a lot, it was quirky, touching, interesting - until the last few chapters. Suddenly a few twists happen, and the ending of the book imo was not very good.

This book is stuck in the no-man's land between delicious chick-lit and meaty literature. It is neither/nor, which makes you wonder what the point is. ...more

I usually love this authors books but just could not get into this, only read about 30 pages

The book was okay, but not what I would call chick lit. There are recipes and a little food talk but book is in no way a foodie read.

I enjoyed this book a lot, especially since the main character was a music teacher. I liked how the author went back and forth between her current life and childhood.
