You may remember in 2009 we reviewed Amanda Cole’s first self-published book ‘I Hate Cinderella’.
Well, we are delighted to have been asked to review Amanda’s second book – You are my Future.
You are my Future follows the story of Sierra Field in a snippet of her life. One day she is confronted with her ‘Future’ self who knows the dramatic events that are about to unfold. They need to work together to save a life of someone very special to her.
I was honestly captivated by the first page of You are my Future. At chapter three I had to put the book down, (dinner time) and I was already intrigued by the story. I found myself thinking about the concept of the book all throughout dinner. How would I react if my future self popped into my life? I love it when a book goes beyond the words on the pages and really enters your mind and that is exactly what You are my Future did for me.
I also found this book very thought provoking. A few things mentioned in the book made me think back to parts of my own life. An example was when ‘dribble castles’ were mentioned, when you pick up handfuls of drippy sand and pile it onto of each other. It took me right back to my childhood when I made ‘dribble castles’ on the beach with my family. It just gave me a wonderful moment to remember and appreciate some of the small parts of life.
