As seventeen-year-old Lenni is about to learn, it’s not only what you make of life that matters, but who you share it with.
Dodging the doctor’s orders on the terminal ward, she bumps into fellow patient Margot, a rebel-hearted eight-three-year-old. Their bond is instant as they realize that together they have lived an astonishing one hundred years.
To celebrate their shared century, they tell each other their life stories: of growing old and staying young, of giving joy, of receiving kindness, of losing love, of finding the person who is everything.
As their extraordinary friendship grows, it becomes vividly clear that life is not done with them yet.
I can assure you now, you will need a tissue or two to read this emotional but tender story about Lenni and Margot. I fell in love with Lenni and Margot and loved seeing their friendship develop, it was heartwarming to see. I really liked how the book is set out, we go from the past to the present where we find out more about their lives. This book really made me grateful for the life that I live and my family and friends. The ending really got me and I was glad to have a tissue. A beautiful tale of two friends who form an unbreakable friendship through tough times.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
