Blurb; Kit doesn’t understand why his family has been uprooted to a remote coastal village in the North. Why did they leave so suddenly, and why has his Dad not joined them? At Askfeld Farm Guesthouse he meets an eclectic group of new neighbours and forms an unlikely friendship with Beth, who suffers from a chronic illness he does not understand. Kit learns that Beth, who cannot leave the guesthouse, is trying to draw a map from memory that shows all her favourite childhood haunts. Kit makes it his quest to help her remember by visiting places for her and hopes to solve the problems of the other guests along the way. But becoming a hero like the ones in his favourite books is trickier than it seems, especially when Kit has failed to grasp so much of what is happening around him… Can Kit work out that the person who really needs his help is much closer to home?
My Review; This book has one of the cutest main characters, a boy named Kit aged 11. After relocating to a new house and area he finds himself in a guest house with a few other residents until his new house is ready. He soon gets to know them all individually and he tries to be a hero by cheering them up, fix them or solve their mysteries… But it’s not always as easy as that is it? His intentions were good.
A beautifully written story with a gorgeous cover. I enjoyed reading this one. Perfect setting too on the coast, next to the sea. I loved Kits character he may be 11 but he is very mature. There is a perfect part towards the end which shows the bond, strength, hope and love between a brother and sister (Kit and Juilet), that got me! Emotional. Cute. There’s an untold story in all of us and sometimes they can’t be cured, fixed or found. A well deserved four stars from me. A beautiful, happy ending.
