In our opinion A Place Called Here is one of Cecelia Ahern’s finest novels. A captivatingly magical, beautiful and heart-warming idea that will speak true to anyone feeling lost in the world.
Ever since the day her classmate Jenny-May Butler vanished, Sandy Shortt has been haunted by what happens when something, or someone, disappears. Finding has become her goal.
Jack Ruttle is desperate to find his younger brother Donal, who vanished into thin air a year ago. So when he spots an ad for Sandy’s missing persons agency, he’s certain that she will answer his prayers and find his missing brother.
But then Sandy disappears too, stumbling upon a place that is a world away from the only one she has ever known. Now all she wants, more than anything, is to find her way home.
A Place Called Here thinks of absolutely everything. A wonderfully touching book that will encourage you to hold the things you consider precious close, and that will spark you curiosity about the things you have lost.
Sandy Shortt is an incredibly fantastic character, written in such a way as it is impossible to dislike her, making this novel all the more enjoyable and readable.
We could not put down A Place Called Here, and have read it again many times since.
A novel you really should not miss, from a fantastically talented author, that will leave you with a sense on wander and stick in your mind for many years to come.
We give A Place Called Here Five stars.
