The "what are you reading"

Progresses to her as an adult telling her story in England. Highly reccomend this book. 5* out of 5*. pbp
I read it this summer and was also very impressed. It was the best book I have read in a long time. In the U.S. it has a different name so if you are looking for it look under the author's name. It may be called "Someone knows my name".
