The Book of Tomorrow

Synopsis:  What if we knew what tomorrow would bring?
Would we fix it? Could we?
Born into the lap of luxury, sixteen-year-old Tamara Goodwin has never had to look to tomorrow, until the abrupt death of her father leaves her and her mother a mountain of debt and forces them to move in with Tamara's peculiar aunt and uncle in a tiny countryside village. Lonely and bored, Tamara's only diversion is a traveling library. There she finds a large leather-bound book with a gold clasp and padlock. Intrigued, she pries the lock open, and what she finds inside takes her breath away.
Tamara sees entries written in her handwriting and dated for the next day, and when they happen exactly as recorded, she realizes she may have found the solution to her problems. But Tamara soon learns that some pages are better left unturned and that, try as she might, she can't interfere with fate.

My Review:  I absolutely loved this book.  This is not like her chic-lit book, P.S. I Love You (and I love chic-lit).  The hardest thing with this book for me was to put it down.  I was up too late too many nights reading this book!  I was completed pulled into the story.  I think the best way to describe this book is a “magic-infused suspense novel.”  It is filled with twists and turns that have me wanting more. 

The main character, Tamara, is a spoiled brat whose father commits suicide.  Tamara and her mother are forced to move to the country and live with her Uncle Artie and Aunt Rosaleen.  The people that enter her life through the book and the lessons she learns just keeps you wanting more.  Tamara soon realizes that she is responsible for her actions and learns some very valuable lessons.  My favorite character that she meets is Sister Ignatius.  I wish I knew someone like her in my life.
