This was an enjoyable read that I think will be appreciated by those who love to read lots of books.
I loved the idea of penpals, as I had lots of penpals during my teenage years. The focus on the way books can have an impact on the lives of the readers was also a great one. Broken Wheel was a fun town with some quirky characters, and I loved the whole opening up of the bookshop.
However, the reason I give this 3 stars instead of 4 or 5 is because I found the story a little too light and predictable. I would have preferred more surprises or for it to tug at my heart more. I wouldn’t say I truly connected with any of the characters.
I would like to thank the publisher, Sourcebooks Landmark, for allowing me a copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
