Review of Lifesaving for Beginners by Ciara Geraghty

About Lifesaving for Beginners -                                   

Kat Kavanagh is not in love.

She has lots of friends, an ordinary job, and she never ever thinks about her past. This is Kat's story. None of it is true.

Milo McIntyre loves his mam, the peanut-butter-and-banana muffins at the Funky Banana cafe, and the lifesaving class he does after school. He never thinks about his future, until the day it changes forever. This is Milo's story. All of it is true.

And then there is the other story. The one with a twist of fate which somehow brings together a boy from Brighton and a woman in Dublin, and uncovers the truth once and for all.

This is the story that's just about to begin...

Lifesaving for Beginners has everything you want in a book. It has love, faith, humour, secrets and a story that will stay with you even after you have finished this amazing, touching story. The story revolves around Kat and Milo, two very different people, who live in two different countries but each have one thing that ties them, that being a secret Kat tries to hide and the life Milo is now forced to live with.

Kat Kavanagh lives in Dublin, Ireland. Everyone believes that she has a normal job, lives a normal life but none of it is true. Kat has many secrets, ones that she has tried to keep hidden from the eyes of everyone...but for how long?

Milo McIntyre lives in Brighton, England. Milo lives a normal life, with his mam, Beth and his older sister called Faith. Milo loves the lifesaving class that he does after school. Then, one day Milo's whole life changes dramatically and will never be the same again. Both lives thrown into turmoil and not knowing if their lives will ever seem normal again.

Suddenly, Kat and Milo have something in common without even knowing it. Both having to deal with their lives that have been changed. This book has two different points of views which make it even more unique, there are many secrets that will be unexpected and shocking when they are revealed.

Even though the book is sad, it is also funny and heart warming as well. Ciara Geraghty's books are normally the type of genre that I read but what makes this book different is that book has more depth and insight into how lives can be changed in a matter of seconds.

If I had to sum this book up in three words they would be lifechanging, powerful and emotional.

If you are a fan of Jodi Picoult then you will definitely love this book.

Ciara Geraghty's book is out now on amazon.

Is published by Hodder & Stoughton.

Thank you to Eleni Lawrence for giving me a copy of Ciara Geraghty's book.


Another day, another book,
