What I Think…
The Girl with the Lost Smile was released on Thursday 5th October 2017. I wanted to get myself a copy as soon as possible. Miranda (One of my favourite comedians.) has put some of her jokes into a children’s book in which I can relate to and which I had a book like this when I was a child. I can relate to how Chloe feels when she feels down and sad and wanting to get her smile back but not knowing how. I can still relate to how Chloe feels now at aged 25 with having depression. Wished I had someone like Godfrey and Hoppy to tell me everything is going to be alright and that I just have to be patient and wait.
Although The girl with the lost smile, is aimed at children, it is also a suitable read for adults too. I think its a great book to read if you are someone like me who has Dyslexia because having jokes, and words and phrase where they writing is in either, bold, big, small or in capital letter helps tell the story even better and help keeps me focused on reading the book. Also I like the few illustrations that are in the book too.
I wish more people could have and share courage, hope and love. Also I hope Miranda writes another book as I will defiantly be buying and reading it.
