Jellybird by Lezanne Clannachan
An enjoyable, surprising novel with a very striking writing style, this book is easy to read and enjoy. It is about a young jewellery designer, Jessica, who makes a new friend in Libby and then finds her past slowly impeding on her new life in London. Jessica is a well drawn character who is likeable but a little unrealistic. As she struggles to cope with her past catching up with her, her methods of coping become increasingly unhealthy, and I thought this was portrayed very sensitively. The plot is gripping but again a little unrealistic. Overall, a very good book which is worth a read.
