It is a common debate, is life pre-planned and down to destiny, or is it a serious of coincidences that add up? A mix between a love story of boy meets girl, girl and her loss of parents and boy struggles to decide if science is at play. So is it a coincidence that the small seaside town of Helensburgh that my Grandpa visits is mentioned? Who knows! It made me smile reading the book anyway. One of the most original books I have read in a long time and I will definitely be reading more of Ironmonger’s works.
