The Surprising Days of Isla Pembroke By Tamsin Keily

The Surprising Days of Isla Pembroke By Tamsin Keily


Some days you remember forever. But what if you could live them again?

If Isla Pembroke could turn back time, she knows exactly which days of her life she would change.

The day she started working in the local aquarium, not knowing that she’d still be stuck there seven years later. The day her sister Morgan ran away from home. And, most of all, the day that changed everything, when her mother’s death cracked her family in two.

So when she’s given an impossible gift – a chance to go back and relive those life-changing moments – Isla realises that she might be able to save the people she loves.

But sometimes the most surprising days aren’t the ones that change everything, but the ones that come after…

My Thoughts:

This is not my usual kind of read but I enjoyed it none the less. The story is about time travel and what would you do if you could go back in time and change things? It was an really interesting idea for a story and it really worked. It made me think about the what ifs. It was a bit of a rollercoaster of emotions with feeling happy, sad, funny and also the grief. I think Tamsin has written this story very well and her characters are all described well. I look forward to reading Tamsin’s next book.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
