Reviewed: Feeling Sorry for Celia

Feeling Sorry for Celia (Ashbury/Brookfield, #1)Feeling Sorry for Celia by Jaclyn Moriarty
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book. I didn’t expect to love it this much but when I saw that it was written entirely through letters I had to give it a try.

Feeling Sorry for Celia is the story of Elizabeth, Celia’s best friend, who has to deal with Celia disappearing on occasion and not telling anyone. Celia is her best, and only, friend so when she leaves Elizabeth has to cope with her worry about Celia and her bizarre family by herself.

Enter in Christina, Elizabeth’s new penpal from a neighbouring school. Even though they don’t know each other they begin to confide in each other through their letters.

I really loved that this book was entirely written through letters between the character, with Elizabeth’s Mum’s being my favourite. The characters are interesting and caring (mostly) and make you want to really wish you were friends with them.

One of my favourites for the year I think.

… just realised this is #1 in a series of books! I’ll have to find out about the rest!
